Care, advice and support for victims of crime
across Cleveland, County Durham and Darlington.

9am - 5pm Monday - Friday



Theft is one of the most common crimes that affect people and can range from theft from mobile phones through to significant losses of money or other valuable items. Regardless of the value of the loss common impacts of the crime include

  • Financial impact
  • Feeling of vulnerability or anger
  • Loss of trust in others
  • Feeling unsafe in your home
  • Fear of repeat victimisation


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.
