If you have been affected by a crime in some way and need practical help, someone to speak on your behalf  or emotional support , then we can help you, or signpost you to other agencies who can.    We are not a 24 hour service however, if you email or contact on the numbers below someone will reply to you as soon as possible and we will aim to direct you to the best service for you.

Unsafe at home? If you are in an abusive relationship and need somewhere  to go for some thinking space and to make telephone calls, Boots the Chemist stores and many of the Morrisons supermarkets are both now offering safe space consulting rooms – where you can go to contact specialist domestic abuse services for support and advice.  Please also look at the Bright Sky app which is free to download and which can help you find local support in your area.
