The NSW Government recognises that being a victim of crime can be a difficult experience. If you are a recent victim and wish to speak to someone, you can start by going to
'Help and Support'.
Our Justice Journey material helps victims navigate their way through the justice process by providing information and guidance from the time they become a victim until after the court process has finished.
The journey covers six stages:
A crime is committed Includes information about recovering from a crime, medical examinations and evidence gathering;
Reporting the crime Details how to report a crime and give a statement to police;
Crime investigation Covers the role of police in investigating a crime including identifying perpetrators and information on arrest;
Getting ready for court Helps victims plan their day at court, decide what to wear and access court support services;
Your time at court Explains the roles and responsibilities of a witness including how to give evidence and victim impact statements;
After court Includes information about appeals, access to court documents, counselling and support.
Detailed Justice Journey information can be found in the Justice Journey videos which are also available on the
JusticeNSW YouTube channel and on
