Being a victim of crime can lead to all kinds of practical problems. This can range from minor issues (such as damage to your property or having to fill in insurance forms), through to serious medical problems or the loss of your home. While emotional support can help you to deal with your feelings after a crime, practical problems often act as reminders of what you’ve been through and make it harder to get your life back under control.
That’s why we also offer help with sorting out the practical implications of crime.
We can help with simple tasks like getting broken doors and windows fixed and assistance with installing burglar alarms. We can also assist with bigger problems such as getting medical treatment and advocating for any housing support needs you have or dealing with the criminal justice system over the course of your trial. We’ll give you the information you need to understand your options and next steps.
