Locals in Port Augusta, Port Pirie and Whyalla will no longer have access to Victim Support Service’s as South Australia’s regional offices will close down this month due to a lack of funding.

After 40 years Victim Support Services will no longer be funded for the provision of therapeutic counselling and support services for victims of crime and abuse in South Australia.

VSS are aware that the closures will heavily impact regional communities where the service has provided more than 21 years of continuous support.

As of June 30th, all offices will be closed, with VSS determined to continue to provide high quality services under other programs that will extend beyond July 1st.
