Victim Support ACT is an agency within the Justice and Community Safety Directorate and administers a range of services and programs for victims of crime and their families. The agency supports the independent statutory positions of the Victims of Crime Commissioner and Domestic Violence Project Coordinator.
Victim Support ACT’s mission and values are the guiding principles for the organisation. These principles inform the direction we will take and the strategic priorities we will apply during 2014-2016. Over the next three years we will focus on increasing the visibility of our service in the community, while managing any increases in demand that stem from this activity. We will be responsive to emerging needs of victims within the ACT community. We will continue to develop strong and productive relationships with key individuals and stakeholders.
Victim Support ACT will play an active role in supporting victim involvement in, and reform related to, the administration of justice. We will advocate for victims in the administration of justice in support of functions of the Victims of Crime Commissioner.
Committed, dynamic and professional staff delivers the services of Victim Support ACT. We will value, support and build staff capability. Our services will be further strengthened by implementing innovative operational measures. This strategic plan sets out how we will act to achieve our mission and goals.
