A not-for-profit with more than 35 years’ experience, PACT is committed to impartially supporting children, and victims and witnesses of all ages, who have to give evidence.

Our Vision

Every victim and witness that needs support is assisted through the stressful process of giving evidence, empowered as they navigate the justice journey.

Our Values

We uphold the rights of victims and witnesses to be heard without fear or compromise. With compassion, honesty and reassurance we help them realise their strength to journey through the legal and court system, and the stage beyond.

victim support

Our Purpose

To educate, empower and support victims and witnesses as they prepare to give evidence, and be by their side as they give their best evidence in court.

Our values also encompass:


 We respect victims and their right to be heard as individuals.


Our support empowers victims and helps build their strength and resilience, to journey through the legal and court system.


Our support for the victim and their family recognises their traumatic experience and offers support that is confidential, impartial and free from judgement.


We follow our moral and ethical convictions to provide impartial support so we honour the justice system in which we operate, as we support victims and their families with the highest level of professionalism.


We are committed to ensuring every victim and their family has the knowledge and understanding of the court process so they can give their best evidence.


We strive to build a strong community that advocates for the rights of the victim.

Our Logo

Our founders made a pact to nurture and protect children, and we have now grown this commitment to also support victims and witnesses of all ages who need support. This is represented in our logo – a bird taking a smaller bird under its wing, sharing comfort and hope, and encouraging it with the knowledge that one day the bird’s wings will grow strong enough so that it can fly wherever it wishes. The sky will be the limit, and where the bird is now is not where it will be tomorrow or in the years to come – much like the victims and witnesses PACT strives to support.
