Summary This report was commissioned by the Victims of Crime Steering Committee in 2009 to identify improvements in co-ordination of referral pathways between stakeholder services and between stakeholder services and victims of crime in the Cairns region. Research was conducted among support providers who offered both direct and indirect services for victims of crime. The report provides an overview of the support available for victims of non-intimate assault, robbery and burglary in the Cairns region. A number of recommendations are included, such as using an easy to understand referral pathways model; regular dissemination of information brochures; and innovative suggestions such as asking home rental agents to distribute brochures and reviewing council roadside signage.
