About

The Victim Care Unit

The Victim Care Unit is a team of staff who work with people who have experienced crime to try and get them the support they need. The Victim Care Unit is run by Devon and Cornwall Police and funded by the Police and Crime Commissioner.

The service aims to help individuals cope with and recover from what has happened to them. The service is available whether or not a person’s crime is being investigated by the police.

The services available from the Victim Care Unit

There are lots of different types of local and national services that can support people who have experienced crime.  

The services that the Victim Care Unit can help people to access in Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, are ones that are funded in some way by the Police and Crime Commissioner. These services together are known as the Victim Care Network.

Because there are so many services available, sometimes the Victim Care Unit may suggest that a person contacts a service that is not in the Victim Care Network and that’s ok.
