Sexual abuse is unacceptable, yet it continues to occur every day in Auckland. HELP is passionate about changing this and offers a wide range of professional services.
HELP endeavours to ensure that women and children in Auckland have a chance to heal from the emotional consequences of sexual abuse.
HELP provides Auckland’s only 24/7 specialist crisis support service for survivors of sexual abuse. We also offer a 24 hour telephone support service for survivors of recent assault, those dealing with the long-term effects of historical abuse and anyone in the community concerned that someone else might be at risk of sexual abuse.
HELP responds to the needs of survivors of sexual abuse with a number of therapeutic services developed for specific client groups, including children, teenagers, and adults.
The court process can be overwhelming and traumatic for survivors. We’re here to HELP make it easier.
HELP believes in engaging with the Auckland community to help make it a safer place. We do this through our We Can Keep Safe programme and doing training and presentations to community groups and organisations upon request.
You may find that HELP doesn’t provide exactly what you’re looking for. We’ve done our best to compile a comprehensive list of other options available to you in New Zealand.
