Victim Support’s new online support resource, My Support Space, has now launched for victims of crime in the Humberside police force area.
My Support Space is designed to help victims of crime manage the impact that crime has had on them. It is a free, safe, secure and conﬁdential space where they can choose how they want to be supported after crime.
The launch of My Support Space is particularly timely, as it gives victims of crime who have been impacted by the coronavirus outbreak additional ways in which to access support, including from their own home. It can be accessed on a computer, tablet or phone.
Victims can access a range of tools to help them cope and move forward after crime. They can work through a series of interactive guides which address their speciﬁc needs. The guides feature videos, techniques, activities and tips, and can be completed at their own pace.
Victims of crime in Humberside can now seek support using My Support Space, through live chat (09:00-17:00 Mon-Fri) or on the phone by calling 0300 303 1976 (09:00-20:00 Mon-Fri and 09:00-13:00 Sat).
Victim Support also runs a free and confidential Supportline allowing victims to access support 24/7. This can be reached on 08 08 16 89 111 or online
The link to access My Support Space is sent out to victims of crime via text message or letter.
