Victim Support - Who we are & what we do



Every year trained volunteers throughout Western Europe work with people who have been affected by crime: from victims of burglary and theft to victims of sexual violence; from young victims of crime to victims of hate crime. Victim Support volunteers are able to offer free and confidential information, emotional support and practical help. They can listen to victims talk about the effect that a crime has had on them or assist them with insurance or compensation claim forms.For further information please Click Here

New Covenant Guide For Local Authorities


A new guide for practitioners in local authorities was recently published by the Armed Forces Covenant team. The GUIDE  provides an overview of what the Covenant is and how it can be delivered within the local community. As public services are delivered differently in each of the UK home nations, detailed guidance has now been prepared for each (including a Welsh language version).

Little Troopers - Books For Forces Families

Little Troopers Treasures is a project LTT partnered with Harper Collins, to bring children's books to forces families, currently there are nine books available to record.
The service family downloads the app then creates a family login, the service person then logs in wherever they may be (WIFI needed) or before they go away and records some stories, the app captures their face, voice and the book pages.
Once done the app zips up the story with lots of love and immediately the service child can go to the Little Trooper mode of the family login and there will be a surprise story waiting! They can watch the stories, or listen, over and over again.
There are also some free supporting resources for families to accompany this app, a weekly planner sheet to print off and use plus separation diaries for both parent and child to complete while separated and then share once reunited.There are also some free supporting resources for families to accompany this app, a weekly planner sheet to print off and use plus separation diaries for both parent and child to complete while separated and then share once reunited.

Driving in icy and snowy weather

Drive extremely carefully when the roads are icy. Avoid sudden actions as these could cause loss of control.
You should:
  • drive at a slow speed in as high a gear as possible; accelerate and brake very gently
  • drive particularly slowly on bends where loss of control is more likely. Brake progressively on the straight before you reach a bend. Having slowed down, steer smoothly round the bend, avoiding sudden actions
  • check your grip on the road surface when there is snow or ice by choosing a safe place to brake gently. If the steering feels unresponsive this may indicate ice and your vehicle losing its grip on the road. When travelling on ice, tyres make virtually no noise.
