How we can help
We give emotional and practical help to people who have been affected by crime in Devon and Cornwall. We’re an independent charity and you can contact us for support regardless of whether you’ve contacted the Police, and no matter how long ago the crime took place. We’ll help you for as long as it takes to overcome the impact of crime.
If you call your local Victim Support team, we’ll make sure you get the information and support you need. This might be arranging for you to either speak to a supporter on the telephone or a meeting for you to talk to us and receive emotional support in confidence, helping you to fill out a compensation form or get advice on how to make your home more secure, or referring you to other specialist organisations that can also help.
For practical help we can send you items that might help you feel safer, such as a personal alarm, at no cost to you.
