Victims services and support
We provide support services, including free counselling and financial assistance to victims of crime. Victims have rights which are set out in the Charter of Victims Rights, which includes the right to be treated with courtesy, compassion and respect. In this section, find out about support services for children, victims of sexual assault and other crimes, and families and friends of missing persons. You can also find out more about victims rights and how to get support throughout the justice system.
