Legal audits and supporting victims of crime
These guidelines describe non-government agency roles in making a referral for a Legal Audit of a young person’s file and recommendations for an application to Victims Services.
Victims Services support
While the Charter applies to all victims of crime, some rights and entitlements only apply to victims of serious personal violence offences.
The following sections outline actions to be taken where it is believed a young person is a victim of a violent crime and may be eligible for counselling, financial support and/or a recognition payment from Victims Services.
