Victim Support in England and Wales

If you have been a victim of crime, Victim Support is a government-funded voluntary organisation that can provide free confidential support, practical help and information. If the police catch the person accused of the crime and the case goes to court, you can also get help from Victim Support's witness service.

If you have been a victim of crime and would like to talk to someone in confidence, you can phone the national support line on 0845 30 30 900. The line is open from 9.00 am to 9.00 pm, Monday to Friday, from 9.00 am to 7.00 pm at weekends, and from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm on public holidays.

You can also contact your local Victim Support scheme. You can find the contact details for your local Victim Support scheme on the Victim Support website.
