Story

The Victim Care and Advice Service provide free, independent and confidential support for victims of crime and their families to help them cope with the immediate impact of crime and assist in their subsequent recovery. For many people the need for support is in the immediate aftermath of the crime being committed but for some the full impact is not evident until later. The service therefore responds to personal circumstances and individual needs at any point following the commission of the crime and regardless of whether it was reported to the police or not. Equally, the impact of crime can have an emotional and physical impact on family, friends and witnesses. They too are welcome to contact the Victim Care and Advice Service for advice or additional assistance.
About charity

Safe in Tees Valley

Safe in Tees Valley (SITV) work with public, voluntary and private sector partners to identify interventions and programmes that help to reduce crime, keep people safe, support victims of crime and create opportunities to change people's lives for the better. Our ambition is to be a centre of excellence in community safety, developing and delivering programmes, assessing the impact and success of our work and offering evidence based models of best practice to other partners and organisations. Examples of initiatives include delivering the Victim Care and Advice Service in Cleveland, County Durham and Darlington, managing the Teesside Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC), delivering a 24/7 Crisis Service that supports the SARCs in Teesside, Durham and Northumbria, delivering Restorative Cleveland, National Citizen Service, targeted outreach and diversionery activities to combat serious youth violence, antisocial behaviour and crime, and other youth and adult initiatives. The services are therefore variable, responsive to need with the common aim of improving community safety. Charity Registration No. 1112657
