Many businesses are currently paying very large amounts of money for Employer Assistance Programs (EAPs) to provide such services as Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD) to employees when they can in fact be provided free of charge through our organisation. Similar to services offered by EAPs, our crisis intervention involves customised programs to meet the various types of critical incidents that an employee might experience, crisis intervention can be arranged immediately following a critical incident and management can be provided with recommendations, including follow-up services.
Furthermore, where an employee is the victim of another form of violent crime, such as domestic violence or sexual abuse, they may also be entitled to access state government funded crime compensation services through our organisation, such as financial assistance and counselling. In such instances victims of crime may be entitled to up to $70,000 in financial and other forms of assistance to aid in their recovery.
Annually, only 10% of all reported victims of violent crime who are entitled to make a claim for crime compensation actually do so with the main reason for failing to do so being a lack of informed knowledge.
