Our Impact

Highlights from 2023

Employment support is a core part of a modern mental health and addiction system.

We value our working relationships with operational leaders, funders and planners, service providers and non-governmental organisations who believe in employment as a health intervention and the transformation that it can bring.

Work Counts acknowledges the Wise Group, the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Social Development. We could not achieve what we do, without your support.
