Victim Support National

Victim Support is the national independent charity for people affected by crime. It provides a free and confidential service, whether or not a crime has been reported and regardless of when it happened. Trained staff and volunteers at affiliated local charities offer information, support and practical help to victims, witnesses, their families and friends. Victim Support provides the Witness Service, based in every criminal court in England and Wales, to offer assistance before, during and after a trial. The national helpline, Victim Supportline, (0845 30 30 900) provides information, support and referral to local services. Victim Support works to increase awareness of the effects of crime and to achieve greater recognition of victims’ and witnesses’ rights. The organisation receives funding from the Home Office but welcomes corporate donations and sponsorship.
