Support services

Each court has a range of support services to assist people going to court.

These services include dispute resolution, mediation, interpreting services and personal support. Some are provided by the court and some by agencies working at the court. 

The following agencies may also be able to assist.

Victim of crime support services

The Victims of Crime website includes videos and interactive features to help victims understand the court system.

The Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal (VOCAT)

VOCAT assists victims to recover from a crime by providing financial assistance for expenses incurred, or reasonably likely to be incurred, as a direct result of the crime.

Court Network

Court Network is a court support service that provides personal support, information and programs to those in contact with the justice system. Court Network volunteers provide support and information (in person or by telephone) about going to court, or refer people to other services that can help.
