Victim Support give emotional and practical help to people who have been affected by crime in Dorset. We’re an independent charity and you can contact us for support regardless of whether you’ve contacted the police, and no matter how long ago the crime took place. We’ll help you for as long as it takes to overcome the impact of crime.

Last year we offered immediate support to over 5,000 people affected by crime in Dorset, and gave in-depth support to more than 500 people. If you call your local Victim Support team, we’ll make sure you get the information and support you need. This might be arranging a meeting for you to talk to us and receive emotional support in confidence, get advice on how to make your home more secure or referring you to other specialist organisations that can also help.
