Who is a Victim?

A victim is any person whose life has been affected by a criminal act, tragic circumstance or disaster, regardless of severity.
Trauma has an impact on everyone – especially the victim. However, victims of crime and their families and friends may also require support following a crime. We are here to help them too. Victims come in all shapes and sizes.
