Robbery is when someone steal’s a person’s property and while doing so, uses violence or threats of violence.

Following a robbery it is common to experience the following:-

The Victim Care and Advice Service will provide you with professional, personalised and independent support to help you cope and recover from the effects of a crime. A Victim Care Officer will meet with you and discuss your concerns or any questions that you might have. We will then work together to  address those concerns, answer those questions and reduce the impact of the crime.
