Located in Newcastle NSW, our Victim Support Unit, funded via Department of Justice (Victims Services), operates within the Hunter Region of NSW and in Sydney. A unique organisation in NSW, we are a trauma-specific service that directly addresses trauma and its effects.
The Victim Support Unit believes timely and accurate information, along with practical and positive emotional support, is paramount to recovery. We aspire to empower clients to make informed choices, guiding them through their current situations. The Victim Support Unit regularly provides written and verbal submissions to the NSW Government around legislative change on issues important to victims of crime.
