Family Violence and the Victims of Crime Assistance Act 1996

In December 2016 the Attorney-General asked the Commission to review the provision of state-funded financial assistance to victims of family violence under the Victims of Crime Assistance Act 1996.

The Commission has been asked to review and report on:

  • the eligibility test and whether it should be expanded;
  • whether the amount of compensation awarded reflects the cumulative impact of family violence;
  • the requirement to notify perpetrators; and
  • the matters giving rise to refusal of application.

A consultation paper was published on 19 June 2017.

Make a submission by 28 July 2017.
