Help us to help victims across Europe

Victim Support Europe works in many ways to help victims across Europe.

  • We carry out advocacy work on victims’ rights, develop policies and monitor rights at the national level.
  • We help national organisations to develop their own capacity to help victims through training, workshops, advice on European laws.
  • We help co-ordinate victim support services for victims abroad and help direct victims to their local victim support organisations.

There’s much to do and much more we’d love to do. You can help us make a real difference to the lives of millions of people every year.

Whether you only have a few minutes to spare or more time, whether or not you have specialist knowledge and skills, whether you can offer €1 or €1000, there are many ways you can make a difference:

Victim Support Europe is largely funded by the European Commission and by Membership fees. However, we would like to do much more to help victims across Europe.

As a Not for Profit, we rely on your generous donations and sponsorships to help improve our services and to deliver new projects.

Help your local victim support organisation

We have 40 member organisations directly supporting victims of crime at a national or local level. Volunteers form the foundation of many of their services, which simply would not be possible without them. Your support at the local level is always welcomed. Read more
