Victim Care Devon and Cornwall was introduced to make a significant change in victim care with the establishment of a police based victim care unit and a network of support service providers.
The Victim Care Unit will make contact with victims of reported crime that need support. The staff work with the victim to ensure they are provided with the relevant information to make an informed decision about the care they wish to receive. They will identify the most appropriate organisation to help cope and recover from the impact of crime.
If you have reported a crime, you will have been given a direct dial number to the victim care unit.
Please remember that the victim care unit is a police based unit and as such cannot deal with victims who have not or do not wish to report a crime. Victim Support provide a helpline (0300 303 95473) and email for victims of non-reported crime or self referrals requiring support.
The Victim Care website can also be used to find more information about the service and to access a network of victim care providers.
