How we can help

We give emotional and practical help to people who have been affected by crime in Bedfordshire. 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 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.

Last year we offered immediate support to nearly 13,000 people affected by crime in Bedfordshire, and gave in-depth support to nearly 1,400 people. Based in two district offices in Bedford and Luton, we are running our service alongside thriving specialist projects providing potentially life-saving support to some of the most vulnerable people in Bedfordshire. We are excited to be part of the Bedfordshire Victims Partnership, which sees us building links with a wide range of organisations with the ultimate goal of providing the best possible support to victims across the county.
