Service summary

Victim Care and Advice Service

If you have been a victim of crime, the Victim Care and Advice Service is available to you if you feel you would benefit from some additional support. The service is free, independent and confidential.

The service responds to individual needs and is available when the time is right. For most people this will be in the immediate aftermath of a crime being committed, but for some the full impact may not be evident until later.

Equally, family and friends play a vital role in addressing the emotional and practical impact and they too are welcome to contact the Victim Care and Advice Service if they need advice or additional assistance.

In some circumstances, victims prefer not to report a crime to the Police. This is a personal decision but it does not exclude you from accessing the support of Victim Care and Advice Service.
