It's our role to provide help to everyone in New Zealand when they suffer an injury. Help is available for all New Zealand residents and visitors to the country.
We refer to claims following sexual abuse or assault as ‘sensitive claims’.
You don't have to have a physical injury to get ACC-funded help following sexual abuse or assault. You also don't have to have reported the incident to the Police.
We fund therapy for people who have experienced sexual abuse or assault. We aim to keep our involvement to a minimum, allowing you and your therapist to focus on the therapy.
