Burglary is one of the most common types of crime. A burglary is when someone breaks into a building with the intention of stealing, hurting someone or committing unlawful damage.
It isn’t always a one-off event — some people may be burgled several times, or be affected by other crimes as well, such as harassment or hate crime. The impact of burglary isn’t just financial; it can also have a significant impact on your emotional well-being and sense of security. But however you’ve been affected by burglary, Victim Support can help.
