Fast, flexible, proven workplace wellbeing solutions. 

Kia ora. We're Ignite Aotearoa.

We're a social enterprise that’s changing the way New Zealanders access mental health and wellbeing support, starting in our workplaces.  

Through innovative technology, education and research, we’re focusing on providing every person the opportunity to realise their potential. 
We take a proactive, whole-of-life approach to wellbeing and believe that to truly thrive, we each need choice and flexibility in how we strengthen our mental and physical health, adopt a positive lifestyle and connect to our own sense of identity and meaning.

Mental health &

wellbeing education

Our experienced team provides a range of evidence-based education, designed to build best-practice understanding of wellbeing topics and create high-functioning teams.

Digital wellbeing platform

Ignite’s all-in-one wellbeing platform gives New Zealanders access to a range of support and resources, where and when it suits each person best. Our digital offering is being piloted in 2020, initially with workplaces. 


The platform will offer: 

  • Connection to quality support to wellbeing professionals, counsellors and coaches 

  • Wellbeing assessment and planning tools 

  • Access to a range of mental health and wellbeing resources 

  • Options to suit diverse needs, preferences and budgets. 

Wellbeing research & evaluation

Our research and evaluation team explores the unique wellbeing challenges our communities and workplaces are facing, and how we can best address them. 


We believe in putting evidence at the heart of wellbeing. By partnering with us to measure and report on your current mental health and wellbeing outcomes, you’ll be in a better position to provide effective support and resources. 

Ignite for your community

Over time, Ignite Aotearoa will deliver wellbeing solutions for communities across Aotearoa, including health providers, schools, iwi and whānau. 


We want every New Zealander to be able to access a range of wellbeing support and resources, from any location, at any time, within their budget.
