Supporting Victims and Witnesses of Crime

Victim Support Scotland provides support and information services to victims and witnesses of crime in Scotland. We support 200,000 people affected by crime each year. This support is provided by staff and volunteers in national and local offices and court-based services across Scotland.

We are an independent charity and not part of the Police Scotland or Scottish Courts. All conversations with victims and witnesses are confidential and are not shared with people outside of Victim Support Scotland.  Our service is completely free.

We’re proud to serve victims and witnesses in Scotland by campaigning for their rights and helping improve their experiences of the criminal justice system.


Surviving Crime by Making People Stronger

Through our services, we can help to lessen the impact of crime upon individuals and communities.


Our mission is supporting people affected by crime and keeping them at the heart of justice in Scotland.
