Victim Support

Welcome to Victim Support, the national charity for victims and witnesses of crime in England and Wales.  ( click on the picture to visit the website )

We give free and confidential help to victims of crime, their family, friends and anyone else affected. We give information, emotional support and practical help. You don’t have to report a crime to the police to get our help and can get support at any time, whenever the crime happened. We are not a government agency or part of the police.

We have offices right across England and Wales running and co-ordinating our local services. We run the Witness Service in every criminal court to help people called as witnesses. Our Victim Support line (0845 126 4101) gives immediate help over the phone and puts people in touch with our local teams.

We also campaign for greater rights for victims and witnesses and to raise awareness.
