New support website for victims of crime launched in Lincolnshire

An online portal aiming to support Lincolnshire’s crime victims

By Local Democracy Reporter

Lincolnshire Police has set up a new online portal to offer support and advice to victims of crime in the county.

Victim Lincs has been funded by the Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner and will showcase different support options for anyone who was the victim of a crime.

The website plans to offer safe guidance and vital knowledge about their rights and entitlements under the government code.

It is the first ever Lincolnshire website dedicated to helping victims find support.

PCC Marc Jones said: “My vision is that anybody in Lincolnshire who has been the victim of crime receives the support they need, regardless of whether they report the crime to the police or not.

“I believe that Lincolnshire has the best victim and survivor services it has ever seen – starting with the initial contact from Victim Lincs right through to specialist services supporting survivors of all ages and genders.”
