Victim Support

Victim Support is the independent charity for victims and witnesses of crime in England and Wales. Their services are free, confidential and available to everyone, whether or not the crime has been reported and regardless of when it happened. Victim Support can advocate on your behalf with the police and court, and offer practical and emotional support.

Victim Support’s staff and volunteers are trained to listen, give information and offer feedback. They can help you to make sense of what you’ve been through, discuss your options and help you to feel like you’re getting your life under control again. They can also offer help with sorting out the practical implications of crime. This can be as simple as helping you to fill out forms, or getting broken doors and windows fixed and installing burglar alarms, to bigger problems such as getting medical treatment, getting rehoused or dealing with the criminal justice system over the course of your trial.

Victim Support have a national Supportline which can be contacted by phone or email, using the details below. The local Southwark, Greenwich and Bexley Victim Support team can be contacted on 020 7277 1433. Lines are open 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday. They also run the Vulnerable Youth Project in Southwark, which helps children and young people cope with the impact and effects of crime.
