VSU Helps Profile 8: Sexual Assault
What can VSU Advocates do with Sexual Assault files?
Advocates will attend the scene or hospital as soon as possible, to provide assistance to you or your family. If Advocates are not required to attend at that time, they will phone you to provide support, information and referrals necessary to an adult or child victim of sexual assault. 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.
