Thanks for responding Adam, I appreciate it! In terms of funding I have done to two different funding type workshops/groups and they didnt seem to know where I fit. I have an impression that I could access funding from possibly the Ministry of health or something along the lines of mental health but I have not aggressively tried to find a connection there. Even now thinking that MSD or Ministry of education could do with this service. I am registered on the GETS website but nothing has come up in my line of work. That connection into funding would be awesome for me moving forward.
I guess the market validation has come from working with AUT, with staff at high schools and another corporate figure who facilitates workshops within that space. I am confident I have a space in the corporate world its just how do a get my foot in the door.
Looking forward to your response.
