Support for young victims of crime

The North Wales Victim Help Centre can support young victims of crime, their parents/carers and their family.

The service provides two levels of service indirect support and direct support. Please telephone 0300 3030159 to hear how we can help.  

Indirect Support

The term indirect services is defined as delivering indirect support to children and young people under 18 years old, through the parents / carers or another professional by providing them with:

This work will typically be short–medium term 3-6 sessions. If this work requires more intensive involvement then a specialist direct service is likely to be more appropriate, which we will arrange for your child.

Direct Support

Direct Support involves working with children and young people aged under 18 years directly with a range of interventions (1-1, group work, schools work, social education programmes), sometimes with a parent present (particularly for younger children) but often without a parent present.
