Give in your will

Choosing to remember Victim Support with a gift in your Will is the perfect way to help ensure that we can all continue to have free access to the caring support we may need if faced with the devastation of serious crime, loss, or trauma.
You will truly be leaving a lasting legacy - ensuring that hurting Kiwis get the help they need, anytime, anywhere - both now, and into the future.

New Zealand truly is a beautiful country to live in.

While this is true for most Kiwis, we also need to acknowledge that sometimes, even in such a lucky country, we are not immune from the devastating effects of crime, accidents, disaster and trauma. These things can arrive in our lives from out of a clear blue sky … and as Kiwis, we know how important it is to rally around and lend support when these events happen to one of our own.

That’s why Victim Support needs your help
So we can continue to show up and care for any New Zealanders left devastated when crime strikes, or tragedy happens – either to them or to their loved ones.
