Haere mai and Malo e lelei'. Dealing with sexual abuse is a specialized skill and we are here to help you refer your clients or someone you know to get the help they need. Have a look at this page first and then check what research and resources are available below. Also, be sure to look at our videos. They have good information about what else you might need from other experts to help you and your client get on track.

Getting your client the support he needs is only one click away


Sexual abuse services are not always available across the country. Funding for these kinds of services are limited. We suggest this website as a first port of call. You can also contact ACC to get funded counselling support (conditions apply). Have a look at the site first and then get an idea of what they can offer your client. Then go through the website with them if they are feeling comfortable. 


You can also call Safe to Talk. They are trained specialists who could work with your clients, support people, and the community. You can reach them on 0800 044334 (open 24/7). Be mindful that we don't want to overwhelm our clients with options. Work at their pace and give them space to process what options are available. We have created a document called NIGEL to support you with this process.

There are also support groups available by some organisations which your client may want to attend. Contact us and we will do our best to find an appropriate service in their local area.

We aim to update the research link every 6 months to ensure that information is current and factual.
