Victim Support in Warwickshire work with children and young people, aged between 4 and 18, from the moment they experience or witness a crime, until they and their worker feel that support is no longer needed. There are lots of ways children and young people can get support to cope and recover from the effects of crime and our young people caseworkers will talk to them to agree an individual support plan.
We help children and young people who experience or witness different crimes, including hate crime. We offer support regardless of whether the crime has been reported to the police, or when the incident occurred.
If a young person has been affected by crime, they can call our local victim care team in Warwickshire on 01926 682 693. Lines are open 8am-8pm Monday to Friday, and 9am-5pm on Saturdays. If you need support outside of our open hours, call our Supportline for free on 08081 689 111.
We also have a number of school initiatives that we offer throughout Warwickshire where we go into schools and do assemblies and workshops to raise awareness around topics including: Hate Crime, Anti-Bullying and Cybercrime. We are also happy to approach other topics when requested.
