I’ve been a victim of crime

If you have been hurt, injured, feel scared or had something stolen because of something someone else has done, then crime has happened to you.

There are lots of different types of crime that all affect people in different ways – you can read more about these in our info and advice section.


Things that people can feel or have after being affected by crime include:

  • being on edge and always worrying something bad will happen;
  • not wanting to go out;
  • trouble sleeping and concentrating;
  • having nightmares or wetting the bed; and
  • feeling sick and having headaches.

All of these things are completely normal. They may only seem strange or abnormal because people often don’t talk about how they feel, because they are worried or embarrassed.

Making decisions and living normal live can be difficult after crime. That’s where Voice comes in – we’re a service that was built exactly for people like you. No matter what has happened to you, where it happened or when it happened, it’s free to talk to us and we don’t have to tell anyone if you don’t want us to.
