Victims of crime can often feel alone, isolated and as though their life has been turned upside down. To show your support for VS on Giving Tuesday and to also raise awareness of the impact of crime, we’re asking people to share an #upsidedownselfie and to donate £3 to VS.

You can make your #upsidedownselfie by simply rotating your picture or trying out something more complex like a hand stand. The possibilities really are endless and we’d always recommend you to do something within your comfort zone.

Text to donate

You can donate £3 to Victim Support by texting the word TURN to 70300. Remember #GivingTuesday is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to do something good, so why not tag a friend in your post and ask them to join in on this very special day to help others.

As an organisation that supported just under one million victims of crime last year we know just how long-lasting and devastating the impact crime can have on people’s lives. VS is the voice of victims, working to ensure people who have had their lives affected by crime receive the support they need and the respect they deserve.

Why we need your support

We need to raise money so that we can reach more people to get the support that they need to move beyond crime to a safer, more positive place.

What happens to funds I donate through text?

Victim Support (registered charity number 298028) will receive 100% of the donations made. You may be charged for one text message at your network’s standard or charity rate. Always get the bill payer’s permission.

We use the Vir2 text service from RSM 2000 Ltd. They provide a helpline for dealing with any issues related to text donation services. Call 0330 660 0425. Please do not use this number for contacting the charity.
