What are Victims' Services?

Share by emailShare by email

Victims’ Services are voluntary organisations which offer victims of crime help and support to help them cope and recover after a crime. You are entitled to have your details automatically passed to victims’ services by the police within 2 working days of reporting the crime by the police. You are also entitled to request that your details are not sent to victims’ services if you do not wish them to be. 

If you are a victim of a sexual offence or domestic violence, or if you are a bereaved close relative, the police will seek your explicit consent before sending your details to victims’ services.

You are entitled to receive information about victims’ services including their contact details from the police so that you can access their support at any time.
