A new helpline called Safe to Talk Kōrero mai, ka ora is now available nationwide to provide 24/7 access to free and confidential information and support to people affected by sexual harm in any way.
Safe to talk enables people to get advice and support from trained specialists and to be connected to support services in their community. This is the first time people affected by sexual harm have been able to seek help anonymously at any time from one central place.
The Safe to talk helpline was rolled out nationally on 16 April 2018 after being trialled in Canterbury and officially launched by the Minister for Social Development Carmel Sepuloni on 1 June 2018.
