We help put victims of crime and trauma in control of restoring their lives

Who we are

Victim Support is an independent incorporated society that provides a free 24 / 7 community response to help victims of serious crime and trauma. Volunteers are at the heart of our service.

What we do

Our free service provides emotional and practical support, information, referral to other support services and advocacy for the rights of victims. This support helps victims find strength, hope and safety in the face of grief and trauma at what may be the worst time of their life.

We need you

Our work is carried out by highly trained front line volunteer Support Workers. Our governing body is made up of representatives from 33 Local Group Committees who are also volunteers. We can only keep our 24 / 7 service free with the ongoing help of our community. Would you like to be involved?
