Victim Support who is the independent national charity for people affected by crime, has moved their national centre, which comprises an attractive self-contained 7,610 sq ft period building refurbished behind its façade, to Hallam House, 56/60 Hallam Street on The Langham Estate.
Staff and volunteers offer free and confidential information and support for victims of any crime, whether or not it has been reported and regardless of when it happened. Victim Support works to increase awareness of the effects of crime and to achieve greater recognition of victims’ and witnesses’ rights
July 2008 marked a significant milestone In the 35 year history of Victim Support, when it becomes a single national charity. The organisation has completed the merger of a national federation of 77 charities into a single entity in just over six months. The change will make Victim Support significantly more efficient and crucially, speed up decision making to help keep abreast of new issues and opportunities. One immediate outcome of the mergers is a project to enhance the charity’s services for victims. This will increase response times and help the organisation prioritise support for those most in need.
