About the Supportline

The Supportline is our free 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

Deaf and hard of hearing victims can contact us using Text Relay 18001 08 08 16 89 111. The Supportline also has an interpretation service for people who do not speak English as a first language.

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
