Your financial support and membership will help both the SST and SSGT continue to advocate and support victims of violent and/or sexual crime and homicide in NZ.

You simply need to choose which trust you wish to donate to. Sensible Sentencing encompasses two very distinct trusts and purposes.

SENSIBLE SENTENCING TRUST (SST) | Advocates On Behalf Of The Victims

The Sensible Sentencing Trust (SST) is a registered charitable trust but, unlike the SSGT, does not have donee status with the IRD because this trust unashamedly exists to advocate on behalf of the victims of serious violent and/or sexual crime and homicide in New Zealand, with a view to ensuring effective sentencing and penal policies that reduce re-offending and ultimately keep the public safe.

All donations received by this trust assist our volunteers to travel to meet with politicians about the SST’s policy wish-list (such as bail and parole reform, Three Strikes and public Offender Databases – see more here), attend select committee sessions, educate our membership database regarding SST policies and activities, and run lobbying campaigns such as Christie’s Law.

SENSIBLE SENTENCING GROUP TRUST (SSGT) | Educating and Supporting Victims

The Sensible Sentencing Group Trust (SSGT) is a charitable trust with the specific purpose of supporting victims of serious violent and/or sexual crime and homicide. We serve to educate the public as to the plight of these victims and to ensure such victims and their families are fully aware of their rights and entitlements, providing both education and practical support during their time of trauma.

All charitable donations received by this trust fund our volunteers to assist with such things as educating these victims regarding their rights and entitlements, emotional and practical support during pre-trial court hearings, and a significant financial contribution to the Red Raincoat Trust’s annual victims conference.
