Advocacy

Criminal Justice Support 

BRISSC supports survivors of sexual violence navigate the criminal justice system. We support survivors to:

  • Report and make a formal statement to police
  • Throughout the police investigation process
  • Throughout the court process

 

Restorative Justice Support 

BRISSC is building connections with Adult Restorative Justice Conferencing (ARJC) Queensland.

 

Victims Assist Queensland (VAQ) 

If you have been the victim of a crime in Queensland, you may be entitled to financial restitution and/or a special recognition payment. BRISSC supports survivors of sexual violence to apply for VAQ. If your experience of sexual violence occurred prior to 2009, a criminal conviction is required to access financial restitution and/or a special recognition payment. If your experience occurred after 2009, a criminal conviction is not required.
