About the Supportline
The Supportline is our national telephone helpline which handles over 19,000 calls and 4,000 emails a year. The Supportline is there for you to talk about your experience of crime anonymously and in confidence. Supportline volunteers can give you emotional support and information over the phone, or by email, and put you in touch with our local offices and with other organisations that can help you.
We’re just a phone call away and because it's just a phone call, you're in total control of what's happening – you can end the call at any time, and no one needs to know who you are, or where you're calling from, unless you want them to.
Text Relay and interpretation
Other ways to contact the Supportline
Our Supportline can also give you information by letter and by email. Unfortunately though, they can't give face-to-face support, but they can put you in touch with our local offices which do offer face-to-face help.
The Supportline address for letters only is:
Hannibal House Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre
Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: the best way to request information or support through the website is through our callback facility. If you prefer, you can still email us, but bear in mind that sending personal information about yourself or your situation over a standard email is not secure.
