We have staff who are trained in specialist areas, for example
“As DV champion, i currently provide support to victims of domestic violence. I establish close links with other specialist Domestic Violence services. I will continually look to identify appropriate support to assist victims of DV to move forward and escape abusive relationships.”
“I have extensive experience of dealing with clients who have experienced hate crime and with the families of these victims. The issues surrounding communities suceptible to hate crime are often complex and I aim to provide support and direct them to appropriate support.”
Children and Young People
“I focus on victims of crime under the age of 18, including communication with families/carers. Individual support and outreach sessions are provided within the local community, schools and colleges to some of our most vulnerable members of society.”
Stalking & Harassment
“As stalking and harassment champion i am working on developing support for victims, looking at new ways to improve preventative measures and support options available”
As well as our victim care coordinators we have a team of trained volunteers who can provide support from anyone who needs a listening ear or to bridge any gaps between any other support commencing.
We believe it is important to survey staff about their development and in a recent staff survey, 85% of staff said they were very satisfied with their role.
