The Victim's Assistance Program provides services and public education to victims of crime. The Victim's Assistance Worker prepares victims for the Court System and the Elsipogtog Restorative Justice Circles. The proposed project is a step to bridging the cultural and language gap existing between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples. The project assists victims of crime at the pre-trial, during trial, post-trial stages of the court system, including the pre-charge of the Restorative Justice Healing Circles. The Victim's Assistance Worker is directly accountable by reporting to Elsipogtog Justice Advisory Committee and to the Regional Director of the New Brunswick Department of Public Safety. The Victim's Assistance Worker is responsible for referring victims to the appropriate service providers and agencies; facilitating safety measure for victims-at-risk; providing support services for immediate family members of victims of crime; and raising public awareness of the impact of victimization.
