Helping our local community – Victims of Crime
We work with community partners to end violence against women and children at both a provincial and local level. Our priorities are to help victims of crime get fair compensation, including money for counselling.
Our current projects
Criminal Injuries Compensation Practice Advisory Committee
We are co-chairs of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board (CICB) Practice Advisory Committee (PAC). The committee consults and gives feedback on CICB policies, practices, rules, practice directions, and services. The committee’s focus is to help the CICB provide fair, just, accessible, and quick processes for victims of violence.
Community Legal Clinic CICB Virtual Study Group
We are working with other legal clinics across Ontario to improve laws and policies for victims of crime.
Quinte Coordinating Committee Against Violence
We sit on the Quinte Coordinating Committee Against Violence (QCCAV). The QCCAV promotes education, training and awareness surrounding sexual/domestic violence in Hastings and Prince Edward Counties. The QCCAV supports community partners working together to end domestic/sexual violence.
