Inquiry into the Handling of Child Abuse by Religious and Other Organisations
Victims of Crime Helpline
1800 819 817
Although the Inquiry’s final report will be tabled on Wednesday 13 November, support from the Victims’ Support Agency is still available to victims of criminal child abuse in Victoria.
Victims of child abuse have been supported throughout the Inquiry by the Victims Support Agency (VSA). The VSA is funded by the Victorian Government.
The VSA funds a network of Victim Assistance and Counselling Programs (VACPs) throughout metropolitan and regional Victoria.
Victims of crime are assigned a case manager and are eligible to receive practical assistance, outreach, advice about the process of reporting to police court support, and referral to other agencies. They can link people to support groups and locate services such as private solicitors or legal aid and refer eligible victims to therapeutic interventions including counselling.
