Victim Support (VS) is the independent charity for people affected by crime and traumatic events in England and Wales. Our specialist teams provide individual, independent, emotional and practical help to enable people to cope and recover from the effects of crime.
We’re not part of the police, the courts or any other criminal justice agency. Our services are free and available to everyone, whether or not the crime has been reported and regardless of when it happened.
Last year we offered support to just under one million people. With over 40 years’ experience as the leading independent victims’ charity, we know the impact that crime has on people’s lives and what it takes to help them get their lives back on track.
A world where victims and witnesses are given the support they need and the respect they deserve.
We work tirelessly to empower victims and witnesses to recover after crime.
Uncompromising in our desire to champion the cause of victims and witnesses.
Working inclusively with victims, witnesses and their communities.
Delivering results through high-quality services, providing the best value for our clients.
