John talks to staff who support victims of crime every day. They will tell us how they can help from giving emotional and practical help to signposting you to specialist support. They will explain how they tailor each package of support to the individual and that crime doesn't necessarily need to be reported to the police for the individual to be eligible for support. Call the Victim Advice Line 0800 952 3000 email [email protected]. Those affected by crime can also communicate with the VAL via live chat which is available on its website: www.victimadviceline.org.uk.
