Victim-offender mediation

The Victim-offender Mediation Unit (VMU) provides a mediation service between victims of crime and offenders.

This service is available to both adult and juvenile offenders and the respective victims of their crimes.

The mediation is free, impartial and private and 2 types are offered:

Offenders on parole or community-based orders are not permitted to contact their victim(s) under Department of Corrective Service's victim/offender contact policy without Victim-offender Mediation Unit approval.

If a victim agrees to have contact with the offender, VMU will monitor all contact for as long as necessary.


Victim-offender Mediation Unit offices (PDF 34 KB) are located throughout the metropolitan and regional areas.
