Silver sponsor | ACC

ACC’s vision is to create a unique partnership with every New Zealander, improving their quality of life by minimising the incidence and impact of injury.

ACC touches the lives of a large number of New Zealanders. The health, rehabilitation and service providers who help people who are injured, the businesses, vehicle owners and workers who contribute to the Scheme, and any New Zealander or visitor to New Zealand who's injured in an accident.

ACC’s role is to make sure that all these groups’ needs are met, and making sure our clients get the right care at the right time, while keeping levies fair and stable.


Silver sponsor | Burwood Academy • Hā-i-mano

Research that matters by people who care
The Burwood Academy delivers research with a knowledge translation focus to improve the lives of people living with the experience of disability.

People with the lived experience of disability (PLEx) are the heart of our organisation. We constantly focus on how our research will lead to real and tangible changes for people, allowing them to live well and flourish across the lifespan.

We create a dynamic space in which PLEx, health professionals, tertiary education institutes and industry leaders link and connect in order to pose questions, challenge conventions and apply innovative thinking, teaching and learning to the science and practice of rehabilitation, and living well with long-term health conditions, or following illness or injury.
