VICTIM ASSISTANCE - What we do to help

Becoming a Victim of Crime or experiencing a traumatic event can be a life-changing experience. No crime of event is too small or insignificant and each person will react differently to a crime or traumatic event.

We have found that sometimes it helps to speak with someone who understands what you are going through and the most valuable service our Volunteers provide is to listen.

By listening we can understand the full impact a crime or event has had on an individual and what steps they can take to recover.

Some examples of the types of crimes/traumatic incidents that victims or family members supported by Victim Assistance have experienced:

Homicide, Manslaughter, Death from Dangerous driving, Rape/Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Assault, Theft, Robbery, Burglary, Road Traffic Accidents, Human Trafficking, Bullying/Bullying in the Workplace/Cyber Bullying, Internet Scams, Criminal Damage, Housing Issues, Neighbour disputes, Harassment, Accidental Death, General enquiries re Garda/Court, Barring orders.
