Victim Support is a charity for anyone affected by crime. We have offices all over the country and help over a million people every year. Thousands of people work for us as volunteers in their spare time.
You can find out more about how our charity is run and what we do on our main site About us pages.
We give free support to victims and witnesses of crime, and their family and friends.
Our volunteers are trained to make sure that if you are affected by crime you can get the information, help and support you need.
Our Witness Service has volunteers who are trained to support you if you have to go to court as a witness.
We are independent - we are not part of the police or government. You do not have to report the crime to the police to come to us. That's up to you.
We are confidential
We respect your right to contact us in private. We will not pass on what you say to anyone else without your permission, unless you or somebody else is at risk of harm and even then we wouldn't do anything without talking to you first.
