ACC is investing $44.9 million over four years to establish a fit-for-purpose sexual violence primary prevention system, Minister for ACC Carmel Sepuloni announced today. 

“Almost a quarter of adults in New Zealand have experienced sexual violence in their lifetime, and around one in six people are affected by sexual violence before the age of 18,”  Carmel Sepuloni said. 

“These high rates cannot continue. We need to put in place systems that protect our whānau and our future generations. 

“The new Te-Tiriti-informed primary prevention system announced today, will provide long-term, sustained investment and enhance our Government’s effort to prevent sexual violence.  The package includes $11.715 million of targeted investment for kaupapa Māori approaches. It will enhance the primary prevention system in Aotearoa New Zealand. 

“Primary prevention works to address the underlying drivers that lead to violence,” Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence and Sexual Violence Marama Davidson said.
