Important changes to the Victims of Crime Financial Assistance Scheme
The new financial assistance scheme commenced on 1 July 2016. From 1 July 2017 all new applications for Victims of Crime Financial Assistance should be lodged with Victim Support ACT.
Victims of crime no longer need to make their applications for financial assistance to the Magistrates Court. The new process aims to be more user-friendly.
The Victim Support ACT Financial Assistance Scheme team are working busily to adjust to all the changes and the increased workload. Your patience during this transition period is greatly appreciated.
More information about how to apply can be found here.
