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. You can also contact us for support regardless of your immigration status in England and Wales.

If you call your local Victim Support team, we’ll provide support that’s personalised to you. We’ll listen with compassion and help you find ways to manage and feel safer.

As well as offering support to people affected by crime, we run a number of specialist services in Warwickshire. These include:

Victim Caseworker

Alongside our team of highly trained and experienced volunteers, we also have a Victim Caseworker who provides support to victims of all types of crimes.

Children and Young People (CYP) Caseworkers

We have specialist CYP Caseworkers who provide support to children and young people, aged between 4 and 18, who have either been the victim of, or witnessed, crime.

Restorative Justice

In partnership with Warwickshire Police and other agencies, Victim Support is helping victims of crime access a bespoke restorative justice service. Restorative justice is a process that brings together people harmed by crime with those responsible for the harm. This communication, using experienced facilitators, enables everyone affected by the crime to repair the harm and find a positive way forward. To make a referral or for general enquiries about restorative justice, please email us.

We work with a number of partner organisations in Warwickshire to make sure you get the support you need. Find out more about some of the services and organisations we work with.
