When you’re covered by ACC, and when you’re not
Other support available
Support available from ACC for Christchurch shooting victims and their families
You can get support from ACC if you or a family member were injured in the terror attack in Christchurch in March 2019, or if you lost a loved one in the attack (see: Christchurch shootings: Support for victims).
ACC covers everyone in New Zealand, including visitors if they are injured while they are here. It’s a good idea to contact ACC if you think you may need their support on 0800 101 996.
