Our patron

Dame Malvina Major

I’ve been Patron of Victim Support for nine years, and in that time much has changed in all our lives.

What hasn’t changed, is the absolute commitment and clear determination of Victim Support to help those who need support.  I wholeheartedly congratulate everyone; volunteers, staff, Board Directors, Local Group Committees, supporters, funders, and especially those early pioneers of the service, on delivering essential service to communities all around New Zealand for over three decades.

I sing my praises with a great deal of pride for Victim Support.

Dame Malvina Major
