"Well done ACC!" says NZ Home Health Association Chairperson Trish Neal. "The funding increase just announced by ACC Minister Hon Maryan Street is more than welcome. Providers will use this to give a much needed boost to support workers' wages. Paying better wages allows us to attract and retain committed support workers, who in turn give committed care to their clients," she continued. "ACC clients are a very important part of the home support sector," she concluded.
