New campaign to tackle low awareness of ACC’s role

New campaign to tackle low awareness of ACC’s role and services

ACC’s research indicates that almost half of New Zealanders and nearly 60% of Māori have low awareness of ACC’s role and services. To address this, ACC is launching an awareness campaign that will highlight the scale and range of services it delivers across injury prevention, care and recovery.

“Low awareness and understanding of ACC can stop people from coming to us for help when things go wrong – it’s something we want to change in order to positively impact health outcomes of New Zealanders”, says Emma Powell, ACC’s Chief Customer Officer. The more awareness New Zealanders have of us and our range of services the greater chance we have of achieving that.”

The six-month campaign will cover a range of topics, with an initial focus on some of the more surprising things ACC is involved in across water safety, sport, healthy relationships and workplace injuries. It will feature across digital, radio, print and outdoor locations, reaching over 98% of New Zealand, with a budget of up to $3.35 million.

“We’re using locals, rather than professional actors, in our videos which show there are two sides to the everyday situations we find ourselves in. Our storytelling points to the moment where things could go well or not so well and allows us to use that moment to point to our role. It’s all about encouraging awareness of our surroundings and watching out for each other to prevent injuries.”

“At ACC we’re huge supporters of people getting out and embracing the Kiwi way of life and following their passion, whether that’s mountain biking, doing bombs off the local wharf, exploring Aotearoa’s great walks or a game of rugby with mates. We want people to enjoy life knowing that ACC is supporting them to stay injury free and to get back to everyday life if the unexpected happens.”

Gordon Campbell: On The Elusive Charms Of Christopher Luxon


Well, the first 36 hours of viewing the Christopher Luxon selfie were always going to be the best, before the repetitions set in. We get it, already. He’s an extroverted/big ego/high achieving/God fearing/country music lovin’/family man who is not at all averse to mansplaining to little ladies like RNZ’s Kathryn Ryan what “technical” words like “productivity” actually mean. But wait, there’s more. National is back! Mind you, that’s not the Bad National of recent experience, but the Good National of days gone by... More>>
