How we can help
We give emotional and practical help to people who have been affected by crime in Essex.
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.
Last year we offered immediate support to nearly 25,000 people affected by crime in Essex, and gave in-depth support to over 3,000 people.
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, getting advice on how to make your home more secure, or referring you to other specialist organisations that can also help.
