Home > Our Work > Victims First

The PCC has commissioned a number of services to support victims of crime across the Thames Valley. This includes an overarching referral service, Victims First.

Victims First is managed by the OPCC and is dedicated to making sure that all victims of crime receive the support they need to cope with the impact of crime and build resilience from the impact of the crime.

The service provides free emotional and practical support to all victims and witnesses of crime as well as family members of victims. It is available across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire and can provide help regardless of whether or not the crime has been reported to the police.

Victims First receives referrals from the police, partners and self-referrals.
