Norfolk & Suffolk Victim Care (Victim Support)
Covering the whole of Norfolk and Suffolk, we’re a free, confidential support service specifically designed to help victims and witnesses of crime.
Whatever has happened to you, whatever you may have witnessed and whenever it took place, our trained support staff will work with you to make sure you receive the help you need to cope and recover.
It doesn’t matter if you have reported the crime to the police or not, or previously turned down offers of support – support is available if you need it.
How we can help you
Whether you simply want to talk or need help with practical tasks such as filling in paperwork, our team is on hand and ready to assist.
Being a victim or a witness of crime brings up a huge range of emotions that can make you feel angry, sad, overwhelmed, scared and everything in between.
However you feel, we’re here to talk, to help you make sense of everything.
We can provide a safe place for you to talk through your thoughts and feelings, and to ask any questions you may have. Our support is completely confidential and independent.
Filling in compensation claims, fitting home security measures, getting medical treatment and repairing damage to your property are just some of the examples of the practical challenges you may need support with following a crime.
Everyone’s experience is individual – whatever you need, speak to us and we’ll tell you how we can help.
The Criminal Justice System
We can also help you prepare for going to court as a victim or a witness and explain your rights and what you can expect when going through Criminal Justice.
Whatever you need, we’re here for you.
