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,  insolvency, or something else.    

Business, Mental Health, Disability Activist and Researcher 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 – begging us to get the same message out there to the general public.  They want their voices heard.’

We are open 7 Days a week (including Public Holidays)  Mon to Friday 9 am to 5 pm, and Sat to Sunday 11 am to 3 pm.  We can still be reached after hours.

Our main platforms of communication are via our Business Crisis Support NZ Community Closed Group Facebook pages, and this website/blog. We work at your pace and do not intrude on any wellbeing programme you may be undertaking.   If you have sought help through the Mental Health system and simply want to connect with others who have been through business loss, etc, we are here to help.
