Bedfordshire Victim Care Services is an innovative approach to supporting those affected by crime in Bedfordshire, putting victims at the heart of everything we do. Bedfordshire Victim Care Services offer free and confidential, practical and emotional support to anyone affected by crime, whether it has been reported to the police or not. This includes victims themselves, bereaved relatives, parents or guardians of victims under 18 and members of staff where a business has been the subject of a crime.
One of our skilled Victim Care Coordinators will speak with you to identify the help you might need and what local support is available. If needed, we can support you through any proceedings at Magistrates’ or Crown Court.
We will also talk to you about the benefits of Restorative Justice, which can give you the opportunity to tell the offender about the real impact the crime they committed has had on you.
The service is open between Monday – Friday 8am-8pm and Saturday 9am-5pm.
