How we can help
We give emotional and practical help to people who have been affected by crime living or working in the London Boroughs of Harrow, Barnet, Enfield, Haringey, Hackney, City of London, Camden, and Islington. 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.
The North London Victim Assessment and Referral Service offers initial support and information to people affected by crime; we will assess your support needs and refer you onto your local borough victim service for ongoing emotional and practical support, as well as information and advocacy.
The North London area office is based at:
50 Banner Street
The office operates an appointment only basis.
