Victim Support Redbridge helps Redbridge residents cope with the effects of crime. 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 are available on our website.

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

Victim Support is a key partner in the Redbridge Safer Communities Partnership, helping to tackle crime and substance misuse in Redbridge. Every three years, the Redbridge Safer Communities Partnership and Drugs & Alcohol Action Team have to undertake an audit of crime, disorder and substance misuse in the borough.

The Borough has completed the audit and, until 10 December 2019, are asking for your views on what they've found, to help them write the next Crime, Disorder and Substance Misuse Reduction Strategy, which will run from 2005-2008. The strategy will contain the priority issues that they will concentrate on to reduce crime, disorder and substance misuse in this period, and will also include an outline of the initiatives and programmes that will be put in place to address these areas.

If you'd like to see what they have found in our audit, and have your say on how they can tackle crime and substance misuse in Redbridge, please see the consultation page on the London Borough of Redbridge website.
