Xero Assistance Programme Offer:

Xero recognises that this very long period in lockdown has been trying and has put a lot of strain on all of us.  Access to mental health support can be expensive, and sometimes difficult to access.

Xero have an existing Xero Assistance Programme (XAP) which is available to all customers on a Starter, Standard or Premium plan.  This has now been expanded to offer all Auckland small business owners free and confidential professional counselling until the end of the year.  They do not need to be a Xero customer.

This service is free, 100 percent confidential and available to your staff and their families.  It is run through the world-leading wellbeing provider Benestar and will offer access to three telephone, live chat, or online professional counselling sessions.

If you, or any of your staff or other contacts would like to use this, all you or they need to do is email xap@xero.com with the name of your business and you will be sent instructions on how to access the service.
