Our Impact

Highlights from 2022

On any given day, Work Counts will be having many conversations and connections with IPS employment consultants and clinical staff around Aotearoa New Zealand.

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.
