The purpose of the Survivor-Victims Charter is to specifically support survivors of crime, also commonly referred
to as victims of crime, in their journey of accessing justice as a result of a crime. The term Survivor-Victims is
used through this Charter to recognise the resiliency of the person in having survived the crime and now in
seeking information, support services or justice through the criminal justice process.
This Charter sets out the rights of Survivor-Victims and the services they may access within the criminal justice
system and from other service providers supporting Survivor-Victims.
