Victims of Crime Counselling and Support

From 1 July 2020, Relationships Australia South Australia will provide trauma-based counselling and peer support to adult and child victims of crime as they move through the criminal justice process.

Our trauma-based counselling services are confidential, free and available state-wide. Counselling and support is delivered face to face, by telephone or online video appointment. We also provide interpreting via TTY, TIS and Auslan.

  • Anyone harmed as a result of witnessing a crime
  • Parents or care givers who have been harmed as a result of a crime against their child
  • Relatives of a person who has died or suffered harm as a result of a crime.

The counselling provided is to help deal with the effects of the crime. To access this service the crime must have been reported to the police, GP, or other professional.
