Victim Support is an independent charity working towards a world where people affected by crime or traumatic events get the support they need and the respect they deserve.
We help people feel safer and find the strength to move beyond crime. Our support is free, confidential and tailored to your needs.
Our specialist teams deliver tailored support to help people recover from the effects of crime and traumatic events. We speak up for victims’ rights, ensuring their needs are met in the criminal justice system.
Our volunteers play a wide range of vital roles within Victim Support, providing emotional and practical support to people affected by crime, supporting our office teams with project work or administration, and raising much-needed funds.
Every day across England and Wales Victim Support volunteers generously give their time to help people move beyond crime. Their support helps people feel stronger, understood and able to move forward with their lives.
We always need new volunteers to join our local teams so please get in touch – we’d love to hear from you!
