Victim Support

Victim Support in Wiltshire helps residents cope with the effects of crime. We do this by providing confidential support and information to victims of crime and to witnesses attending local courts. Our services are free, independent of the police and courts, and available to everyone, whether or not the crime has been reported and regardless of when it happened.

Access and Availability :
Our trained local volunteers offer: * someone to talk to in confidence * information on police and court procedures * liaison with other organisations on your behalf * information about compensation and insurance matters *contact with other sources of help. You can contact us directly for help, and if you report a crime to the police they will also offer to put you in contact with us.

How Victim Support can help with this issue:
Trained volunteers offer emotional and practical support to victims and their families. This might be listening to the young person while they talk about what happened, how they feel about it and how they are coping. We can offer support to other family members as well who may also be affected, for example parents. Our service is free and confidential and usually takes place within the victim's home or safe meeting place.
