Victims recognition or restitution payment 

On 3 June 2013 the Victims Rights and Support Act 2013 (the Act) commenced.

NCAT's Administrative and Equal Opportunity Division can review certain decisions made by the Commissioner of Victims Rights under the Act.

The Act abolished the Victims Compensation Tribunal.  Its functions were transferred to the former Administrative Decisions Tribunal which now forms part of NCAT.

For further information contact Victims Services or the NCAT Registry.
