Located in Newcastle NSW, VOCAL’s Victim Support Unit, is partially funded via Department of Justice (Victims Services) which enables us to provide a free service to clients in the Hunter Region. A unique organisation in NSW, we are a trauma-specific service that provides a range of support services and practical advocacy to assist crime victims as they encounter complex challenges, services, legal issues and processes, while assisting them to identify, understand and manage emotions, trauma and its effects.
We believe timely and accurate information, along with practical and positive emotional support, is paramount to recovery and we aspire to empower clients to make informed choices. The Victim Support Unit, along with the VOCAL Committee, regularly provides written and verbal submissions to the NSW Government around legislative change on issues important to victims of crime.
