Crime can have an enormous impact on your physical and mental wellbeing. We have found that most people find it extremely helpful to talk about their feelings after a crime. Sharing your feelings and finding out that other people feel the same way can help to make you less frightened or angry. We do not offer a counselling service but we can refer people on for psychological help or counselling if they need it. We would only do this with your consent.

If you have been injured, you may be entitled to claim Criminal Injuries Compensation. (Unless there are good reasons, you must have reported the incident to the police as soon as possible after it happened). We can explain how you can claim Criminal Injuries Compensation and can help you to make your claim.
