Support and information for family and whānau bereaved by homicide

This publication draws on the honest experiences of New Zealanders who have had a family or whānau member die by homicide. 

It offers key information about grief and trauma, the legal court processes and systems that victims are involved with, some of the practical matters they have to manage, and the support that is available.

Contents include:

  • The first days and weeks
  • Your grief journey
  • Dealing with legal matters and the criminal justice system

The information in this handbook is current as of the date of publication, 2021. The resource is available to download here and will be updated as required.
