to seek help for themselves and whānau
ACC has launched a new campaign Kia Mahea Kia Puawai - Making It Clear So We Can Flourish.
The by-Māori, for-Māori strategy is created to disseminate useful knowledge about the resources and support accessible to whānau when they are injured.
According to the ACC, Māori are 2.5 times more likely to suffer a serious injury but 25 per cent less likely to claim ACC compensation for it.
In 2019, a research insight showed that half of New Zealanders and almost 60 per cent of Māori had low awareness of ACC’s role and services.
