On the frontline

Victim Support Workers - the heart of our service

Every day our frontline team of Support Workers nationwide strive to give manaakitanga meaning, helping those affected by crime trauma and suicide to find safety, healing and justice.

Wrapping support and care around others binds us together, and when we do this for others in times of need, we empower victims and strengthen communities.

Our highly trained team of Support Workers is at the heart of our service; a mix of staff and volunteers, these are ordinary people who make an extraordinary difference.

Victim Support was founded in 1986 as a volunteer organisation and volunteers continue to play a vital role in our service delivery. Without our volunteers, Victim Support simply could not be there for victims when they need us. They give not only their time and passion but enable Victim Support to respond to more than 40,000 people in need every year all around the country, 24/7.

We support people at any time of the day or night, no matter where they live, managing our service delivery from the following area offices:

Northland/Waitemata
Auckland Central
Counties Manukau
Waikato
Bay of Plenty/Eastern
Central
Wellington
Canterbury/Tasman
Southern

We acknowledge and give grateful thanks to the dedication of all our Support Workers, walking alongside victims in their journey with such generosity and kindness.
