There are times in all our lives where things can get us down, but we all deserve support to get up again. The Society conducted a survey of its members, and identified there was a need for people to access counsellors. Your getUpAgain vouchers can be used to subsidise the cost of counselling. 

What Do You Get?

The Cerebral Palsy Society Executive Board has approved $300 per financial member from 1st July 2021 to 31st October 2021 for the GetOutThere, GetPhysical, GetThis&That and GetUpAgain Programmes. You will need to apply to receive this funding. Please click here to read more about our new eCard system.  

Choosing a Counsellor

You are free to choose your own counsellor, ensuring they are a member of a recognised professional counseling body in New Zealand. You must request for your chosen counsellor to accept our getUpAgain vouchers. Please refer your counsellor to this web page as it explains the process.

If you need a starting point for finding a counsellor, please click here for information about suppliers for our programmes.

Alternatively, please click here to go to the website for the New Zealand Association of Counsellors.  Under Specialist Area you can select Disabilities, fill in the other boxes, but do not fill in name (of counsellor), do a search and it will reveal all counselors that fit the criteria you specified.
