Speak out for Survivors

Wellington HELP is not only a support service for survivors, but an advocate for change.

 

We want survivors to have a better experience through things like the justice system (should they chose to report) and to feel safer in our regions shared spaces. We also want to ensure we are providing the right support for our diverse communities.

If you would like to help support change for survivors in Aotearoa New Zealand, check out ways to engage and feedback below. 

Sexual Violence Legislation Bill

This bill amends the Evidence Act 2006, Victims’ Rights Act 2002, and Criminal Procedure Act 2011 to reduce the retraumatisation victims of sexual violence may experience when they attend court and give evidence.

Find out more about the bill below. If you would like to see the proposed bill become law, you can contact your local MP and encourage them to support the bill. We even have a link to a sample letter below!
