Services

Victim Support Scotland works closely with the police, social work and community organisations and has established a network of area services throughout Scotland, including Victim Support Moray.

The bulk of direct work with service users is undertaken by locally recruited volunteers all of whom will have completed appropriate training and who are supported and managed by the service co-ordinator. Each local service is required to have representatives from social work and the police as members of their area committee.

Volunteers, trained by Victim Support Moray, give people a chance to talk about their experience with someone who is not an official and not a family member (who may be emotionally involved).

Volunteers can also provide the following help:

  • coping with practical problems such as making an insurance or compensation claim
  • long term and short term emotional support
  • support in court by our sister organisation, the Witness Service

Services provided by Victim Support Moray also include:

  • a sympathetic ear
  • emotional support
  • information about compensation, including assistance in completing forms
  • information about criminal justice procedures
  • information about other agencies which provide further specialist support
  • practical help
  • support in court for witnesses, including a pre-trial visit to the court

Victim Support is not able to provide financial assistance or professional support.
