Victim of crime support services
The victims of crime website includes videos and interactive features to help victims understand the court system.
The Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal (VOCAT) assists victims to recover from a crime by providing financial assistance for expenses incurred, or reasonably likely to be incurred, as a direct result of the crime.
Court Network is a court support service which provides personal support, information and programs to those in contact with the justice system. Court Network volunteers provide support and information (in person or by telephone) about going to court, or refer people to other services that can help.
