CYPRUS

VICTIM SUPPORT IN CYPRUS OPERATES THROUGH SSAFA AND IS ALIGNED WITH VICTIM SUPPORT UK.

THE SCHEME OPERATES OUTSIDE THE MILITARY CHAIN OF COMMAND. OUR TRAINED VOLUNTEERS SUPPORT ANYBODY AFFECTED BY CRIME. IT DOES NOT MATTER WHEN THE CRIME HAPPENED OR WHETHER THE CRIME WAS REPORTED TO THE POLICE. WE SUPPORT ALL VICTIMS OF CRIME, REGARDLESS OF ETHNICITY, AGE, GENDER, OR BACKGROUND.

WHAT WE CAN OFFER YOU

  • Someone to talk to in confidence
  • Independent support and advice
  • Information on Police and Court procedures
  • Liaison with organisations on your behalf
  • Support to claim Compensation
  • Trained volunteers to go with you to the Police Station or attend Court 

HOW TO GET OUR HELP

Individuals can be referred to us, with their consent, through the Police or Welfare agencies. 
Or you can contact us direct in confidence.
