Our values

People are at the centre of everything we do. Diversity is important to us and we seek to welcome and involve people from all sections of the community.

We aim to achieve the highest standards of professionalism in our work, and in our dealings with victims and witnesses and with each other.

Our independence is important. It gives us freedom to say and do whatever we think is necessary to benefit victims of crime and witnesses.

We seek to be innovative and to learn, to ensure that more is done to help victims and witnesses.

We work in partnership with individuals, with communities, and with other organisations to promote the rights of victims and witnesses and to improve our services to them.

We put these values into practice through the following principles:

Victim Support does not make public statements on the punishment and sentencing of offenders, except when discussing issues that directly involve the victim, for example compensation or protection.

We have a Diversity statement that builds on these values and principles to help us work towards fair treatment for everyone with whom we work.

"Victim Support and the Witness Service helped me when I became a victim of attempted murder. I wouldn't have got through it without them." Deborah, Manchester
