Funding for support agencies

We provide funding to not-for-profit agencies that support victims of violent crime in Queensland.

Victim Services Funding Program 2017–21

We have allocated $12.56 million of funding over 2017–21 to community organisations to provide free or low-cost services to victims of crime in Queensland. We have split this funding across 6 streams:

  1. Trauma-informed counselling and support for victims of crime, delivered across Queensland.
  2. Trauma-informed support for young and adult males who are victims of sexual violence.
  3. Trauma-informed support for young and adult victims of violent crime who have an intellectual disability.
  4. Trauma-informed support of people who have been affected by the crime of homicide.
  5. Support for children and young victims of violent crime involved in the criminal justice system.
  6. Support for adult victims of violent crime involved in the criminal justice system.
