Being a victim of crime can affect your mental health and wellbeing. The Crime Victims Counselling Service provides counselling and support for people affected by crime. We make sure victims have the resources and support they need to move on with their lives.
Who we help
We can help people who are the victim of a crime or who witness a crime. We can also help relatives and close friends of a victim.
How we help
Our counselling service is tailored to the needs of each client. Clients are entitled to up to eight clinical counselling sessions. Counselling can be face-to-face, by telephone or in a group setting.
We can assist with:
• Information and advice about the legal process and your rights
• Applications for compensation.
• Referrals to other support services
• Community education and training
