Expansion for Victims Assistance Program
Centacare’s Victims Assistance Program is set to increase staffing, tripling its number of Case Workers since 2009. The expansion to services corresponds to an increase in demand and greater awareness of victim’s supports across the Barwon South West and Grampians Region.
Centacare Victims Assistance Program Coordinator Benita said the expansion of the program is timely “Expanding our program means more people can access our services and the additional supports to victims of crime, especially in our regional locations will assist communities and individuals to manage the impacts and effects of crimes”.
Centacare has sites in Ballarat, Horsham, Geelong and Warrambool with co-locations at the Victoria Police Stations in Ararat, Stawell, Horsham, Corio, Colac and Warrnambool.
