Simpson Grierson is celebrating 10 years of supporting Youthline

Simpson Grierson is celebrating 10 years of supporting Youthline, the organisation committed to helping New Zealand's young people.

Youthline is Simpson Grierson's main charitable partner. The firm shows its support through an annual donation and other fundraising activities. Specific initiatives include (FREE TXT 234). This SMS text message service helps young people using their medium of choice - the mobile phone. The service averages 4-5 times more traffic than Youthline's phone line service.

Simpson Grierson's pro bono partner Michael Wood says:

"We all want to help build a better future for the communities we live in. Using Simpson Grierson's expertise and resources to help people in the community is something that we are absolutely committed to. Our partnership with Youthline is something we take great pride in. It's an organisation that provides enormous support for young people and opportunities for their personal development, across the country."

Stephen Bell, Youthline CEO, comments:

"Simpson Grierson has been a consistent partner for 10 years, that consistency has helped Youthline grow into a vibrant proudly New Zealand grown youth development organisation.

Simpson Grierson enabled Youthline to step further into the digital space through the provision of a world first text counselling service. Ten years on we have answered over 1.5 million texts and taken our learnings out into the world supporting other countries to establish text counselling services. Without Simpson Grierson’s belief in Youthline and the ongoing consistent support we would not be all that we have become. We are proud to be your partner."
