Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal

233 William Street, Melbourne

The Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal gives financial assistance to Victorians who have been injured by an act of violent crime.

This tribunal sits at most Magistrates’ Courts across Victoria. Victims of crime and their families can make an application to this tribunal. The tribunal decides if they are entitled to financial assistance and, if so, how much. The act of violence must have occurred in Victoria, and it must have resulted in injury or death to at least one person. The word injury includes physical harm, mental illness and pregnancy. It does not include damage to property or theft.
