Victim Support Avonvale supports residents, who are victims and witnesses of crime, in Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire. 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.

If you would like to use our services, please contact us - details of our offices and branches are available on our website.

If you prefer, you can contact Victim Support's national telephone supportline - Victim Supportline - on 0845 30 30 900.
