ACC

Across the board, the government is making cuts to ACC that will affect you. Public opposition is widespread, with various action groups forming regularly. This is a call out to all those affected by this issue, to come together, discuss, plan, and brainstorm ideas to stop these cuts once and for all.

A brief summary of changes so far…

 

  • End of free physiotherapy treatments
  • Sexual abuse survivors will have to be diagnosed with a mental illness to qualify for free councilling
  • Motorcycle registration up to $750 for bikes bigger than 600cc
  • Moped and scooter registration up $30
  • Car registration up $30
  • “Average worker” taxes up $345 per year
  • No councilling or support for families affected by suicide
  • Possible privatisation
  • What next?
