The Survivors Trust - Ministry of Justice UK 

The Ministry of Justice has developed a free online and telephone advice service to signpost victims towards local support services. The service means that all victims can go to one place for information and advice about what support is available to them, and how to access it. The website provides factual information about what happens after a crime and what help victims can expect. There is also a function which allows people to search for the services available in their local area. The telephone information line is run by Victim Support and directs people towards the most appropriate support available in their area. It can also provide information to people about their entitlements as victims and, where appropriate, provide immediate emotional support to vulnerable people.
