The Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal is implementing the Government’s Road Map from Stage 4 Restrictions across our Metropolitan Melbourne locations and across regional Victoria.
In compliance with Step 1 and Step 2, the Tribunal will continue to operate at reduced capacity to ensure compliance with current social distancing policies.
When permissible, the Tribunal will move to Step 3, which will allow the Tribunal to operate at an increased capacity and to enable the resumption of processing all applications.
Where possible please submit all correspondence to the Tribunal via email to the venue managing your application. A full list of venue locations and email address can be found at the following link https://www.vocat.vic.gov.au/about-tribunal/our-locations
An update on the provision of remote counselling services can be found at the following link https://www.vocat.vic.gov.au/remote-counselling
Also, please be advised that email is our preferred method of contact with the Melbourne Registry. On receipt of an email from you, we will endeavour to contact you by email or phone as quickly as we can.
In compliance with Step 2, for Regional Victoria, the Tribunal will be processing all applications.
The Tribunal will continue to list applications, where appropriate, using Webex for directions hearings and hearings. When permissible in Steps 3 and 4, subject to social distancing requirements, it may be possible to list in-court hearings.
