A new Victim Support Service is now available at the University, run by students for students in need.
The confidential weekly drop-in service
takes place every Wednesday during semester time in the Cookworthy Building.
The service is being run by Criminology students who have been fully trained and accredited as Victim Support volunteers, and welcomes students who require emotional and practical support in the aftermath of crime.
Victim Support (VS) has a long history of aiding victims of a range of crimes; by offering this type of help, as well as signposting users to other agencies where appropriate.
The new on-campus service is an exciting addition to the work that Victim Support carries out in the wider community, and the students running it have worked hard to get the project off of the ground.
