Have you been affected by crime?
Crime can affect anyone of us whatever our age, but Victim Support, a national charity, recognises that young people are at an increased risk. They are completely independent of the police and other authorities and invite young people affected by crime to come to them for free confidential support. They will support you whether or not you want to report the crime.
You can hear more about Victim Support and their team of young volunteers over on Unity Radio Online (external link).
