Advocates (Ad) who campaign for greater rights for Victims (VIC) of Homicide, their families and friends. We bring together families bereaved by homicide including those affected by Murder, Manslaughter and Fatal Assault.
AdVIC is a national non-profit, non-government funded charitable organisation. We were founded in 2005 by a group of families trying to cope with the unlawful killing of a family member. We at AdVIC understand the issues faced by families following the homicide of their loved ones, as all our members have suffered a similar tragedy.
AdVIC was formed to ensure that the rights of families of homicide victims are not ignored within the Criminal Justice System and to bring about a fairer, more balanced system for such families. We are not affiliated with any religious or political organisation, and hold no ideology beyond the right of victims and survivors to be treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.
