VSU Helps Profile 7: Serious Injury
What can VSU Advocates do with Serious Injury files?
Advocates will assist the RCMP by providing support to secondary victims at the scene, hospital or on a follow up basis as necessary. Some Advocates are trained in Critical Incident Stress Management and are available for debriefing sessions. If charges are laid court support will be provided throughout the court process. The Court Support Worker will ensure that you are made aware of the Financial Benefits program, Requests for Restitution and Victim Impact Statements.
