History

Set up over 40 years ago, Victim Support is the leading independent victims’ charity in England and Wales.

The first Victim Support scheme was set up in Bristol in 1974, and by 1986 every county in England and Wales had at least one Victim Support scheme. We registered as a charitable company in 1987 and set up our free national telephone helpline, Supportline, in 1998.
