At Beacon, our primary focus is to help victims cope and recover from their ordeal. Our team of dedicated and trained professionals will support you every step of the way.
Beacon Hertfordshire provides support for victims of crime, tailored to individual needs.
Working with a specially trained Case Manager, each victim will work towards coping and recovering from the incident, by working through an individualised plan of support. This could include emotional support, practical support, advocacy, access to Restorative Justice and target hardening, to improve your personal security.
Between September 2017 and August 2018, Beacon offered a service to 24,410 victims of crime. During this time, 93.5% of the victims we surveyed were satisfied with our service.
If you wish, we can undertake a needs assessment which will take into account the impact and harm caused taking into account any physical, emotional, psychological or financial hardships caused. They will develop a package of support tailored to your needs and if you wish, act as your advocate. Where necessary, we can refer on to partners who have specialist skills and knowledge, however, rest assured this can only happen if you give your approval.
If you have been a victim of a crime and would like help and support but you do not want to report the crime to the police you are still entitled to the services Beacon can provide.
