Making a Victim Impact Statement

A Victim Impact Statement must be written or typed.  You can write or type your own, or you can use a Victim Impact Statement Form (PDF, 2 pages)

As Victim Impact Statements detail the physical, financial and emotional effects suffered by you as a result of a crime, it can sometimes be very hard to put these feelings and effects into words.  Be patient, it might take a few attempts to get it right.

You can also get help to write it.  If you are seeing a counsellor, psychologist or someone from a support service, you can ask them to help you. 

You can also get help from Victims Support Services.
