Acclaim Otago


Acclaim Otago (Inc) is a support group for injured people and their families. We have written a shadow report to the United Nations which outlines issues people who are disabled by injury have and how the NZ Governements legislation and policies comply with the Convention on the Rights of People with Disability. The UN Committee has now issued a list of issues, one of which is the "Access to Justice" issue we raised in our shadow report. We are now fundraising for extra funds to allow us to travel to Geneva in September to be present when the NZ Government will respond to the UN Committee's questions.

Funds will be paid to a verified bank account of Acclaim Otago .

“Wish we could fund the lot.”
“I've been mauled by ACC so many times and because I can't afford to take them to court they get away with it. It's cost me hundreds of thousands of dollars. Even just last week they used duress to change a written agreement. Go get 'um guys.”
“All the best guys, thanks for all your hard work!”
“Sorry I could not send more, have had a bad year, one person or organisation can make difference, keep up the good work. Cheers Jeannette”
“Well Done, Denise. Keep up the great work you are doing.”
“Best of luck over there!!”
“Will be an interesting outcome”
“Good luck Denise”
“Praying for success at the UN. You deserve a medal for this.”
“Appreciate the work you've done, the support you give, and Love where it is now taking you! Bless you both !”
