19 March 2019

ACC has released information on the support which it has available for victims of the Christchurch attacks and their families.

It says the no-fault ACC scheme covers everyone in New Zealand if they are injured in an accident.

"The scheme covers children, beneficiaries, students, if you’re working, unemployed or retired. It also includes visitors to New Zealand if they're injured while they're here. Whether you've been injured in the Christchurch attacks or have lost a loved one, we're here to help. We'll work with you and your family to make sure you get the help you need."

ACC gives information on how to obtain support along with the support available for families who have lost a loved one.

The information is also available in Bahasa Malaysia, Farsi Persian, Indonesian and Urdu.
