Services - Assistance for Victims of Crime

GETTING HELP & SUPPORT

Getting support to help cope with the consequences of crime may be the most important step you can take.  This may be getting the support of your family and friends.  Or it may be getting assistance from a specific service.  Some of these may be a women’s refuge, victim support agency, rape crisis service or homicide support group. 

The list of contacts provided is not exhaustive for each State and Territory.  It is also not exhaustive for all crimes.  In addition to being able to provide support services, the contact agency will also be able to provide you with information about other types of service.
