How to get independent support

The organisations below are independent of ACC and can offer you free advice about ACC claims. You’re welcome to contact any of them directly to ask for help. Anyone with a claim-related question or issue can access this service.

Other community groups such as Citizens Advice Bureau and Community Law may also be able to help you.  

Who to contact

They are committed to enabling better outcomes for our culturally diverse communities, and supporting people’s sense of rangatiranga (self-determination) through a manaakitanga (holistic wellbeing) approach.
