Help for Victims

Help for Victims

A new website to help victims and witnesses of crime has been created by West Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Mark Burns-Williamson.


Help for Victims, has the Victims’ Code and the Witness Charter immediately accessible in a question and answer format.


The website is in five languages in addition to English, and has pages from over 400 local supporting organisations, who can help with concerns such as cyber bullying or hate crime with trained advisers on hand to answer questions or concerns.


There is also information for victims and witnesses to self refer to local organisations who can provide particular specialist victim and witness services beyond the website.
