Victims of Crime Financial Assistance schemes (ACT)

This section provides information on the financial assistance schemes operating in the ACT for victims of crime.

The ACT is currently transitioning from the existing Financial Assistance Scheme to a New Financial Assistance Scheme. As a result there are currently two schemes in operation.

All new applications for victims of crime financial assistance should now be lodged with Victim Support ACT.  All the information you need to complete a new application is available here.

If you lodged an application for financial assistance with the ACT Magistrates Court before 1 July 2017 - your application will continue to be progressed through the courts.  More information about what applications lodged with the Magistrates Court can be found here.
