The ACT Government is seeking feedback on three key issues as part of its consultation of a Charter of Rights for Victims of Crime:
- How information could be provided in an accurate and timely way to victims of crime about justice processes and their case
- What other opportunities exist for victims of crime to participate in the justice process
- What appropriate complaint management, remedy and oversight mechanisms are required for victims of crime.
You’re invited to provide your views to help ensure the Charter meets the needs of the ACT community, criminal justice agencies and the organisations that support victims of crime. Get involved at www.yoursay.act.gov.au. Click on the Charter of Rights for Victims of Crime page to find out how to:
- complete a 15 minute online survey,
- join a discussion group or forum, or
- provide a written response or submission.
If you have any questions, phone 02 6207 3997 or email JACSLPP@act.gov.au (subject title: Charter of Rights for Victims of Crime).
Victim Support ACT staff are also available to help you to make a submission if you wish: phone 02 6205 2222.
Public consultation closes on 6 August 2018
