Crime Victims Counselling Service

Free counselling and support services to people who are affected by crime

Being a victim of crime can affect social, emotional and/or physical wellbeing. Our service aims to help victims of crime to process the incident and move on with their lives. 

The Crime Victims Counselling Service is a counselling and support service provided to Northern Territory residents who are the victims of a crime, witnesses to a crime or the relatives or close friends of a victim. 

Our counsellors are here to help you manage the situation as best you can and provide you with resources to manage the grief, loss and trauma that comes with being a victim of crime. 

We offer:
• Face to face counselling
• Telephone counselling
• Group counselling and programs
• Information and advice about your rights and the legal process
• Assistance with completing applications for compensation by linking in with other services such as our Financial Wellbeing and Capability program
• Referrals to other support services such as children’s counselling, general counselling and domestic violence counselling
• Community education and training

Referrals can be made by calling free call 1800 899 855 to speak with one of our staff members. Services are offered across the Northern Territory, including remote locations.
