Serious injury & disability
How ACC can help you
ACC's National Serious Injury Service specialises in helping people to return to their everyday lives after serious injury. We are with you every step of the way, right from when you are first injured through to helping you to go home and plan for the future.
Help from ACC starts when you are still in hospital or a specialist rehabilitation unit. You’ll meet your Support Coordinator, who will help you to make plans for going home when you’re ready.
We offer a range of assistance services to help with all the tasks you’ll need to do once you return home after your injury.
- Working out what you’ll need at home
- Personal care
- Choosing caregivers
- Income assistance
We are committed to helping you work out plans for your future. We’ll help you to make those plans and provide support to help you achieve your planned goals.
