The World Heath Organisation, Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 states that countries should have adequate post trauma care response by encouraging “a thorough investigation into the crash and the application of an effective legal response to road deaths and injuries and encourages fair settlements and justice for the bereaved and injuries”.
We know the Government is working hard to build better health and wellbeing for all of New Zealand. We support the Government in its acknowledgement that in order to build positive mental well-being for all of New Zealand, unfortunately, if legislative change is not possible then further funding is required to support the health and wellbeing of New Zealand.
One of our very founding principles is to provide support services to assist those that have been affected by road traffic accident related trauma. In particular, to provide a service for those that do not meet Government criteria. This was the first Charitable Trust of its kind in New Zealand.
