Help for Young People
Speaking to someone
Asking for support is nothing to be afraid or ashamed of – we all need someone to talk to every now and then.
- We’re here to talk and help anyone under the age of 18 who has been affected by crime.
- If it happened to you or not – no matter whether it has been reported or when it happened we are here for you.
- Getting help from us is free. If you’re under 13 years old we need consent from your parent or guardian first.
What can Victim First do?
- At Victim First we listen to you and help you understand what has happened and how you can start to feel better.
- We have a dedicated caseworker who works with Children and Young People.
- If you need help in getting support from other places we can help with that if you need it.
- We can help explain your rights and the law.
- If you want to, we can help you speak to the police or support you tell your parents.
- You can speak to us about anything and we’re here to listen to you.
