One of the people we’ve helped recover after crime is Sarah (not her real name), a victim of street crime and domestic abuse.

“I was referred to Victim Support due to criminal damage to my car. I used Victim Support’s services about nine years ago when I was having problems in my relationship. I live with my partner who is an alcoholic and has a history of becoming violent and emotionally abusive towards me. More recently, he has been in trouble with the police and charges have been bought against him for trouble with neighbours. He was sentenced and the police are aware of his behaviour.

“Because of the criminal damage to my vehicle, I was allocated a volunteer, who was very supportive and realised quickly that she would need to get me another worker trained to talk about domestic abuse.

“The appointments have really helped because it means I can get things off my chest and understand my situation better. Talking to Tracey helps me gain perspective and has given me confidence to get in touch with domestic abuse support services and speak to the housing people at Norfolk County Council.

“I’ve known for a long time that I want and need to leave but haven’t had the strength to. By having support and working with Tracey I am feeling a bit stronger and thinking about how to get out of my situation. I’m still feeling a bit stuck but at least I’m getting the right support now and am considering the idea of refuge and how I might be able to make that happen.”
