More ACC support is on the way for victims of sexual abuse or assault.

The improvements include more therapy options, more hours of support for those who need it, and a more sensitive claim form.

Minister Nikki Kaye says it's clear ACC has listened to clients, families, and counsellors, to make sure wider and more flexible support is available.

She says it's not just about helping individuals, but entire families, as there's a wide impact when a loved one is sexually abused or assaulted.
