17 April 2017 Victim Support launches information in six languages
Victim Support have launched a range of new brochures in six languages that will make Victim Support's services more accessible to victims of crime and trauma with limited English.
The new brochures have been produced in Simplified Chinese, Hindi, Korean, Japanese, Samoan, and Tongan. They assist with information about Victim Support's services and how to access them if language is a barrier. The brochures will be available through Police and Victim Support offices around New Zealand.
The translation and printing of brochures was made possible with a grant from Milestone Foundation. We're proud to be able to support organisations like Victim Support who do great work within our community.

Milestone Foundation is proud to support Panama School in Mt Wellington, Auckland and the development of its new playground.
A huge number of community organisations benefit from gaming machine proceeds by way of grants. In the 2015/2016 financial year alone good causes recieved about $260 million in grants, an amount many community groups would struggle to source elsewhere.
The Department of Internal Affairs have recently developed an e-booklet called "Pokie Proceeds: Building Strong Communities". It tells the stories of 10 organisations helped by gaming funding from Gaming Trusts in New Zealand - why they applied for a grant, challenges they faced, what the money was put to and tips to other applicants.
If you're a Community Organisation, we recommend reading the booklet to improve your knowledge and build your organisation's confidence in seeking funding. The booklet also includes tips on how to best apply for gaming grants.
The e-booklet Pokie Proceeds: Building Strong Communities was developed and written by the Department of Internal Affairs.
