Get help and advice

If something bad has happened to you, or you are worried about something, don’t suffer in silence. Tell a trusted adult or friend and use their support.

If you don’t want to talk to someone who knows you, you can also get help from various services who specialise in helping and supporting children. There are some links on this page.

You can also search our directory to find services that support children and young people are victims or witnesses of crime. You can find help for yourself, or someone you are worried about.

You can get help regardless of when the crime took place, and you don’t have to report it to the police.

  • Search the directory
  • Call our helpline
  • ChildLine – 0800 1111. You can call them about anything – no problem is too big or too small. Calls are free and confidential.
  • YouandCo – helping young people cope with the impact and effects of crime, even if you have not reported it to police.

There are lots of organisations dedicated to helping young people with a whole range of issues, including support for young victims of crime.
