Mentors

Our mentors will listen to you so you have someone to talk to and will help you to build your confidence and cope with stressful feelings.

They will help you to access support, if you feel that you need it.

Activities

Many young people who have been impacted by crime have said that activities that help build confidence are important.

If you have been impacted by crime, you can take part in fun and safe activities with other young people who have also been affected by crime.

Help to access other support organisations

We can give you information, advice and guidance, so that you can find the right support for you.

There are also links to support organisations which work with victims of different crimes.

Coping with crime

Different people are affected by crime in different ways. If you feel that you need help to cope, you can talk to us about it.

Working with Children looked After

Restorative Approaches with Children Looked After

We are working to reduce offending by young people in residential care. Restorative approaches practiced every day help to prevent offending and offer a means of resolving issues, as well as a way to look more deeply at offending and inappropriate behaviour.

We encourage staff to realise the importance of modelling this behaviour and using the practices in staff rooms and in personal settings to deepen their understanding of the work.

Becoming a Victim Volunteer

We are recruiting Volunteers to support Young Victims. Do you have 2 - 3 hours a week to spare to mentor a young person?
