Crime has a devastating impact on many aspects of a persons life. Whether it is a single incident trauma, complex trauma, relational trauma or inter-generational trauma, the Victim Support Unit is equipped to provide support for life after crime.
Reporting a crime can be a daunting process which can raises serious concerns about personal safety. Many people express fearing retribution, and we assist clients with strategies for safety planning, accurate record keeping and effective communication. We believe that accurate and timely information can assist with managing anxiety and uncertainly.
Often there are times when people report a crime and police are unable to take further action. This is often frustrating for many victims of crime, and the Victim Support Unit works closely with local police to ensure our clients are well informed as to the reasons why a matter can not proceed.
