With You on Your Journey

support information for family and whānau bereaved by homicide

A handbook developed in partnership, by Victim Support and Skylight.

Skylight and Victim Support New Zealand wish to acknowledge and offer respect to those who have died by homicide and to their family, whānau, and friends. Our organisations see the impact on those who have lost a loved one to homicide first-hand. 

We have developed this handbook in response to a need for comprehensive information for all affected by homicide. We hope this information will answer some of your questions and help guide you on your journey. Most importantly, we want you to know that you are not alone.

Further practical information can be found on Victim Support's resource centre web page.
