Support for victims of crime

If you are a victim of crime, you can find out about your rights; where to access counselling and how to apply for compensation at Victims Services. The Victims Services website has a section called Justice Journey which gives practical advice and contact details of service providers that can help and support you before, during and after the court process.

Victims services also publishes a range of fact sheets and brochures to help victims at different stages of their experience. The guides they publish about the criminal justice system include Sentencing and Victim Impact Statements.  

If you are an Aboriginal person or Torres Straits islander who is a victim of crime in NSW, you can call the special confidential Victim's Services Aboriginal contact line. 

For more information see Legal and court support for Aboriginal people.
