We support children and young people who have been affected by crime. We can also support parents and professionals who work with children and young people.
We firmly believe that the most effective way to work with children and young people is in partnership with their parents and the professionals around them, with their full consent regarding the services and support the child receives.
If you wish to refer a child to Victim Support then we always require consent from the child and, where safe, the parent before referral.
We may not always be able to share everything children and young people say to us in our meetings with you as we offer a confidential service; however, we do encourage and support children to share relevant and important information with parents or trusted adults and will try and include you in the work where possible. Often we will include parents in the working together agreement, which will detail expectations for working together, including consent, confidentiality and safeguarding procedures.
Our service leaflet entitled "Helping Your Child after Crime" can be found in the downloads section of this page.
