Welcome to the Victim Notification App (ViNA)

Kia ora! This website is here to support people who have been affected by crime, as well as their friends and whānau.

  • What is ViNA?

    ViNA is a new system for communicating with people who have been affected by crime.

    You can choose to receive notifications through an online ViNA account instead of by post/email if you’re signed up to the Victim Notification Register (VNR) and the defendant in your case was sentenced. (Not sure how to register for the VNR? Click here (external link) for more information.)

  • How can ViNA support me?

    By signing up for ViNA, you’ll receive notifications faster and have more control over your information and how you access it.  

    When a notification is ready for you to view, you’ll receive an alert via email or text. You can then log in to your ViNA account to read the notification at a time and place that suits you.
