Victim Support – Thames Valley Police

 

 

Police and Crime Commissioner Anthony Stansfeld recently launched a new website to support victims of crime.  Victims First www.victims-first.org.uk is a new online resource for victims of crime which has advice on what to do and how to get help.  It includes information and advice for victimsincluding signposting them to services to help them cope and recover from the impact of the crime. It also includes a section on the Victims Code explaining clearly what help victims can expect from the police and other criminal justice agencies if they report the crime.
The focal point of the website is a directory which allows victims to find relevant support in their area. Members of the public are able to use the website to refer themselves directly to the PCCs own support services or find information and contact details for other organisations. This support is available regardless of whether or not the victim has reported the crime to the police.
We will be promoting the website over the coming months and would appreciate any support you can give in promoting it to your communities through your existing channels such as social media, websites and newsletters.   I’ve attached the Victims First logo for you to use as needed.
If you have any questions or want any further information about the website, please come back to me.
Many thanks
Kind regards
