Victim support and advice
One victim of crime is one too many. If you’ve been a victim of crime, there is support and advice available to you.
When you report a crime to us, we may if necessary ask you if you’d like to be referred to an alternative organisation, such as Victim Support, that can help you.
Anyone who is affected by crime can contact Victim Support for help.
Victim Support is the independent national charity which helps people to cope with the effects of crime. They provide free and confidential support and information to help you to deal with your experience.
