Established Monday 18 June 2018 Business Crisis Support NZ is the first Organisation of its kind in New Zealand set up to help & support those who have experienced, or are going through the process of business loss, bankruptcy, or insolvency. We have ‘lived experience’ of business loss & we understand fully – the psychological price of entrepreneurship. We cover a wide range of topics – many with political themes.

We did our first public speech on the impact of business loss/failure on Mental Health at the recent Govt Inquiry into Mental Health and Addictions held in Whangarei in June 2018. We sent through a submission with recommendations for improved support and education on the same topics to Govt Agencies, Business Organisations, Regulatory Bodies, Chamber of Commerces, etc to be fed upwards, downwards, and outwards to the Business and Public Arenas.

Business, Mental Health, Disability Activist Fiona Green says, ‘There is a growing demand for a specific support service like the one we are offering – not only in our community but nationwide. It wasn’t until after our presentation, that we realised how strong the demand was. A number of previous business owners came up to us after the Meeting – thanked us, and asked us to get the same message out there quick and to keep pushing. They want their voices heard.’

Business Crisis Support NZ challenges the status quo of commonly held beliefs & negative stigmas regarding business failure through debate, investigation, research and reporting.

‘There is more than one factor leading to business failure/loss. It is not just the owner’s fault. Other factors may include: natural disasters (like earthquakes), illness, staffing, theft, burglaries, market changes, competition, Acts of God, etc,’ she says.

Business Crisis Support NZ provides advocacy, support, research, and ‘look behind’ investigative services free of charge to Clients experiencing or going through the process of business loss, business failure, business bankruptcy. We carry-out lobbying/advocacy efforts, surrounding business loss, bankruptcy, insolvency, including mental health & addictions associated with entrepreneurship.

We are open 7 Days a week (including Public Holidays) 7 am to 10 pm.

Our main platforms of communication are via our Business Crisis Support NZ Community and Closed Group Facebook pages, Linkedin, and this website/blog. Contact: Fiona Green 02108520271 or email: fionagreen@xtra.co.nz
