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.
To find out more about support and advocacy for criminal justice, restorative justice and VAQ, please contact us.
