Free Binders

National free binder programme

The free binder programme is designed to support people in Aotearoa NZ who need a binder and cannot afford to purchase one.

You can use the form below to send us a request for a free binder, from anywhere in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Our binders are designed by Gender Minorities Aotearoa, with co-design input from This is the Back, and the clinicians at Physio Spot, and with much testing by people with diverse bodies and chests. They are made right here in Aotearoa NZ at This is the Back.

We can only purchase a limited number each month to redistribute for free, so it may take several months depending on demand and how much money we can raise. We are working hard to make binders available and affordable, and bring this waiting time down.

If you have applied for a free binder and your phone number has changed since you applied, please let us know so we can get in touch to check your address is current before we send it out.

If you have applied for a free binder but you no longer need this, please let us know.

We appreciate your patience.

If you would like to donate toward more free binders, you can use our donations page here, and use the reference ”binder donation”.
