Crime is tragic and vulnerable people can be severely affected. You can volunteer for Victim Support. Volunteers do make a huge difference in reducing crime. Each year hundreds of people volunteer to visit crime victims in their own homes.
Victim Support volunteers help people affected by crime. Specialist teams provide individual, independent, emotional and practical help. This enables people to cope and recover from the effects of crime.
Victim Support are a charity, not part of the police, the courts or any other criminal justice agency. The services are free and available to everyone, whether or not the crime has been reported and regardless of when it happened.
Last year Victim Support offered support to 814,000 people. So the charity provides an invaluable service. Volunteers provide emotional and pragmatic support to victims of crime. Volunteers visit victims who have asked for a bit of extra support.
