What services are available to victims of crime?
Information about what services are available for crime victims can be found on the Victims Information website.
Victim Support provides 24-hour emotional support, personal advocacy and information to all people affected by crime and trauma throughout New Zealand.
Visit the website of Victim Support. Where a Police prosecution occurs the court victim advisers (employed by the Courts) offer free, confidential and professional services to victims of crime
The role of court victim advisers is to:
- provide information to victims about the case that relates to them
- advise victims about their rights in the court process
- help victims participate in the court system.
A court victim adviser will contact you after the defendant’s first appearance in court. Or you can contact an Adviser through your local court.
