Victim Support ACT (VS ACT) will continue to provide a range of clinical and non-clinical services to individuals who have experienced crime in the ACT.  The service recognises the effect of trauma and that trauma informed care is individualised to each person’s needs. It aims to understand the trauma and the impact on the person's life. 

The multidisciplinary Health Professional Officer team at VS ACT includes Social Workers, Counsellors and Psychologists, which are referred to as Case Managers.  VS ACT also contracts a panel of providers to deliver services to our clients.  This panel is made-up of Psychologists, Social Workers, Counsellors, Remedial Masseurs, and Tutors. Assistance for victims applying for financial assistance will continue to be provided.

As well as overseeing the day-to-day functioning of Victim Support ACT, the Victims of Crime Commissioner will continue to advocate and educate for the interests of victims of crime, collaborate with stakeholders, monitor and promote compliance with the governing principles, and perform the statutory functions of the Domestic Violence Project Coordinator.
