The Victim Support West Yorkshire multi-crime service provides support to any victim of crime. It doesn’t matter when the crime happened, or whether you’ve reported it to the police.
The West Yorkshire team is made up of trained Referral Centre Advocates, known as RCAs. They’ll discuss with you how you’ve been affected by crime, and can provide immediate support and information. They’ll also make sure you’re aware of your rights under the Victims’ Code.
Depending on your needs, the RCAs may refer you to our local teams who can provide longer term support. Our teams include specially trained caseworkers and volunteers. They’ll work with you on a range of areas you may need support with, such as your wellbeing or safety. They’ll also be able to put you in touch with other services that can help.
