If you think you may be eligible for Criminal Injury Compensation you can contact the Aboriginal Family Law Service for initial advice. If you appear to meet the criteria of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme, they can assist you to prepare your application.
In some cases a person can ask for compensation even if they were not the direct victim of the offence. They can assist by:
- Providing eligibility advice
- Helping with applications
- Helping to obtain documents such as medical reports
