Victim support

Victim Support is the national charity for victims and witnesses of crime in England and Wales.

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

Their Victim Supportline on 0845 30 30 900 gives immediate help over the phone and puts people in touch with their local teams.
