Victim Support has launched an official fund to raise funds for victims of today’s shootings in Christchurch, and is encouraging anyone affected by the incidents to reach out to the organisation for help.

Donations can be made at

Victim Support is the government’s primary provider of support services to people and families affected by homicide in New Zealand.

All donations received through the fund will be ring-fenced to provide resources and support to those affected by this horrific event.

Anyone affected by the incidents is encouraged to contact Victim Support on our 24 hour crisis line - 0800 VICTIM (0800 842 846).

Victim Support is responding to referrals as received from the public and Police, and will continue to do so through the night and the weekend. Support is also available to people outside of Canterbury.

Victim Support stands with everyone affected and with all communities in New Zealand today.
