At The Maggie Oliver a Foundation we are committed to ensuring survivors are aware of all the legal options pertaining to the abuse you’ve experienced and that any action you take should be based on YOUR choice.
We feel very strongly that you should be given all your options and make an informed decision when deciding what it is you would like to do.
Reporting to the police
We can support you to report to the police if this is something you wish to do.
We can arrange to support you in interviews and in subsequent appointments.
Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) Claims
We can assist with information around the process of applying for CICA
Sexual Assault Referral Centres
We can support you to attend a SARC if you wish, where you can explore options open to you.
Compensation (Civil Claims)
Survivors may wish to pursue a legal claim for compensation in respect of the abuse they have suffered and we can provide information about legal options that may be available for survivors of sexual abuse.
It is important to understand that if the abuse happened many years ago, survivors may still be successful in obtaining justice and compensation.
