As a victim of crime, making decisions can be difficult and confusing. It is important to know how or where to get information and support. During this difficult time, it is vital that a victim is treated with courtesy, compassion and respect.

The Government of Western Australia is committed to responding to the needs of victims of crime, and those who are indirectly affected by that crime, such as families, friends and/or colleagues.

This website is an initiative of the Victims of Crime Reference Group and the State Government. It is designed to help victims of crime, their families and others by providing answers to the most commonly asked questions and issues encountered.
