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 wellbeing and sense of security. But however you’ve been affected by burglary, Victim Support can help.
