About Lancashire Victim Services

For Support when you need it , when you’re ready for it

In Lancashire, our commitment to victims of crime is very clear.

Lancashire Victim Services will:

•  Be there to offer you support when you need – it doesn’t matter if the crime has just occurred or if it happened several years ago. Support will be available when you’re ready for it.

•  Support victims whether or not they have reported the crime to the police.

•  Offer you the support you need, whatever crime you have been a victim of. That’s why we have developed specialist services for victims of hate crime, Child Sexual Exploitation, rape and sexual assault – to ensure Lancashire’s most vulnerable victims get the specialist help they need.

•  Provide a service dedicated to under-18s who have been victims of crime, to make sure young people receive a service tailored to their needs and experiences.

•  Make sure Restorative Justice is victim-led and is available to every victim.

•  Ensure you have a voice in the criminal justice system, and are kept up-to-date with your case and informed about what is going on.

• Recognise crime can also have an impact on family and friends of victims, as well as the local community, and make sure support is in place for them if required.

•  Make sure you are treated with dignity and respect and feel valued and safe at all stages of the support process.

•  Follow the Victims’ Code.
