One of the biggest issues facing young New Zealanders today is the waiting times for funded face to face counselling.

The Gumboot Friday counselling funding service is designed to take the pressure off current services and give young people facing long wait times an alternative pathway.

Gumboot Friday is not a long-term solution designed to take over from government services, rather, they should be seen as a bridge between current services and immediate need. Everyone is encouraged to seek government funded help while utilising our service.

Free counselling through the Gumboot Friday fund is available for anyone 24 or younger.
