Victims of Crime NT Inc. (VoCNT) is a community organisation, established in 1995 to support victims across the Northern Territory who are affected by crime. Our aim is to assist people to recover, restore and grow through the provision of a range of practical and emotional support services, and prevention activities. VoCNT advocates for and promotes public and government awareness of the needs, rights, and interests of victims of crime.
Victims of Crime NT operates in accordance with its mission and vision statements, organisational values and policy framework. Our team commits to a Code of Conduct, Privacy and Confidentiality requirements, and actively participates in organisational planning and development. VoCNT has offices in Darwin and Alice Springs, and regularly visits Tennant Creek, Katherine and Nhulunbuy to deliver services. Our work in remote communities is ongoing and is planned and prioritised annually. The location of this position can be based at either our Alice Springs or Darwin office. Some travel to regional and remote communities may be required.
The organisation is committed to reconciliation and is about to begin our second Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan. We understand the intergenerational impacts that colonisation has had on First Nations people and recognise their over representation within the criminal justice system. We are striving to provide culturally appropriate services to support First Nations people in their experiences of criminal victimisation.
VoCNT promotes a supportive, collaborative, and accountable team environment and is committed to the development of our staff. We have a life-long learning and continuous improvement philosophy, and all staff have a learning and development plan. Flexible workplace practices are in place where possible to support our workforce.
VoCNT adopts the Sanctuary model for the whole of the organisation. Sanctuary helps us to build a trauma informed community that acknowledges adversity as a human experience, and creates safety for healing, recovery, and growth to occur. VoCNT is working towards accreditation as the first Sanctuary provider in the NT. Our 8 Sanctuary commitments provide the backdrop for this approach:
Open Communication - We are honest and say what we mean with kindness
Democracy - All voices and views are heard and respected
Social Learning - We are curious and learn from each other and from our challenges
Emotional Intelligence - We manage our feelings, so we don't hurt ourselves or others
Non-violence - We use unconditional care to stay safe and allow others to feel safe
Growth and Change - We acknowledge loss, are open to new ideas and are hopeful for the future
Social Responsibility - We help each other and take responsibility for our actions
Cultural Humility - We accept and engage with cultural differences and do our best to reduce power imbalances
