An independent charitable organisation supporting both victims and witnesses of crime.
Providing a free, confidential service to victims and witnesses of any crime and their family and friends, regardless of when the crime occurred and whether or not it was reported. They also support those who feel vulnerable when attending the Domestic Proceedings or Matrimonial Courts.
The service is non-judgemental and supports people regardless of their age, gender, disability, sexual orientation, race, religion or beliefs. Although they work very closely with the Police and the Courts, they are totally independent of them.
The Victim Support and Witness Service ensures that victims and witnesses have the best possible experience of support on both a practical and emotional level at what can be a very traumatic and challenging time. This ensures that justice is more likely to be served, making the Island a safer place.
Both services operate from a quiet self-contained suite, based on the ground floor of the Court building.
