Spotlight on: Support for Children & Young People
As well as adults, we support children and young people in recovering from the effects of crime
Our support is also flexible, to fit around young people’s lives and situation, which can include support online, or by telephone or email; our focus is on communicating with children and young people in the best way to suit them. This can include the use of art, games and other activities to stimulate and support a young person’s recovery and engagement.
Alongside our one-to-one support, there are also a range of online resources for children, as well as family members of victims, provided by Victim Support. These resources can be accessed at any time, and are specifically designed around young victims; with activities and guides on a number of topics, such as an interactive court room and information on different types of crime.
