Welcome to Victim Support ACT.
Victim Support ACT provides information, advocacy, support and counselling service to people who have been a victim of crime in the ACT.
For more information or assistance, please contact us.
If you are a victim of institutional child sexual abuse and are considering making a submission to the Commission visit their website for information:
The Commonwealth Government has opened a free, national legal advisory service for people engaging with the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. The service Knowmore provides confidential advice over the phone or face to face on how to go about providing information to the Royal Commission. The service will also advise people about other important legal issues such as witness and informant protections, the availability of compensation or other forms of action or redress, and the implications of existing confidentiality agreements.
The Canberra Rape Crisis Centre has been provided funding from the Australian Government to support individuals engaging with the Royal Commision process. The client line can be accessed on 6247 2525 (7am-11pm Mon-Sun).
People who have been victims of abuse in institutions may also seek support from Victim Support ACT or find other support services here: http://www.childabuseroyalcommission.gov.au/…
