Our Story

Our vision

A world free from sexual violence.

Our mission

We help individuals, whānau and communities affected by sexual abuse move from surviving to thriving

Our Work

In 1985, Wellington HELP were set up as a not-for-profit organisation to provide specialised support to individuals, whānau and communities who have been affected by sexual violence. In 2005, we set up offices in Porirua and Kāpiti to provide more accessible support for survivors up the coast.
