Advocacy Service welcomes new Minister for ACC
David Wadsworth and Tony Gibbons of Access Support Services, a Nelson-based nationwide advocacy service, congratulate Nick Smith on his appointment as the new Minister for ACC.
“We are pleased to see Nick Smith has been given the ACC portfolio. As Nelson’s electorate MP we have always found Nick to be approachable and helpful on ACC related matters” comments Mr Gibbons.
“Access Support Services has successfully engaged ACC in modern dispute resolution processes such as mediation and facilitated meetings on behalf of our clients. We hope that whatever changes a National-led Government make to the ACC scheme, such as opening it up to competition, provisions are put in place to make advocacy services like ours more assessable to claimants” said Mr Wadsworth.
