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

Victim Services Funding Program 2017–20

We have allocated $9.42 million of funding over 2017–20 to community organisations to provide free or low-cost services to victims of crime in Queensland. We have split this funding across 6 streams:

  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.
