This website provides useful information and practical advice for victims and survivors of crime, and their families. You can use it to find help, regardless of when the crime happened, or whether or not you reported it to the police.

Who we are

The Greater Manchester Victims' Services website has been put together by Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham (internal webpage), along with partner agencies.

Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime Kate Green (internal webpage) is responsible for commissioning victims' services in Greater Manchester. We want to make it easier for victims of crime to get the help they need, regardless of when the crime took place, or if it was reported to police.

Working together, we want to radically transform and improve the way victims' services are delivered in Greater Manchester, putting victims and survivors of crime at the heart of everything we do, including service design and delivery.
