Victim Support

Victim Support is a community based voluntary organisation of trained volunteers, dedicated to the service of all victims of crime.
Branches throughout Ireland provide support and practical help to victims in their own homes.
Victim Support works very closely with the Gardai. A liaison officer is appointed to work with each branch and assists by passing on referrals.

Victim Support promotes the cause of victims through:

  • The provision of information about victims rights.
  • Influencing social and criminal justice policies, to obtain fair and compassionate treatment for everyone affected by crime.
  • Increasing public awareness of the needs of victims of crime and the issues affecting them.



Tourist Victim Support Service: provides sympathetic "listening" and practical support for tourists who become crime victims.

Court Witness Service: provides support throughout the court process.

Families of Murder Victims Service: exists to help families who have been victimised through the murder of a relative or close friend. Consultation is available to both individual and family groups.

Youth Awareness Programme: is a positive and pro-active response to the increase of violent crime in society among young people. This Programme is driven by the belief that by empowering young people as partners against crime, longer term solutions will be achieved.

Crime in the Workplace: is a programme which aims to educate management and staff on the likely effects of crime, following a break-in or robbery.
