Can I still access victim support services?

Our Signpost Hub is continuing to run, 8am until 8pm Monday to Friday, and 9am until 5pm on Saturdays, which offers free and confidential emotional and practical support to all victims of crime.

The best way of getting in contact is to email or call the free phone number 0800 0282 887, where voicemails can be picked up. Victim Care Co-ordinators can also advise on which other specialist support agencies are available.
