HELP offers a 24/7 crisis line that receives over 13,000 contacts a year, provides over 500 callout support services to survivors being interviewed by police and undergoing medical examinations, provides 100 support sessions and supports 100 women, children and men through court. HELP provides more than 200 women, children, loved ones counselling and psychotherapy over the course of a year.
HELP provides early intervention services reducing the risks of PTSD and other potential long term impacts of sexual abuse/sexual assault and ensures survivors know where to go and what to do next. Feedback from survivors is that we save their lives, help them to reclaim a life worth living, and help them to restore or recreate family.
Before they turn 16, up to 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 7 boys may be sexually abused in NZ. HELP is a not-for-profit that is there for survivors whenever they need us, helping them to recover and heal. We provide free therapy for women and children. We also provide a specialist 24/7 crisis service throughout Auckland, and support for survivors throughout the justice process. We also work at the top off the cliff, with a world class prevention programme for preschoolers, and online support designed with and for young women: www.dearem.nz.
