SAFE! Support for Young People Affected by Crime works across Buckinghamshire/MK and the wider Thames Valley.  If you are struggling to cope with the impact of crime, our experienced Project Workers can offer you support at home, or school, or wherever you feel safe. We are available to help all 8 to 18 year olds (up to 25 for those with additional needs) who live in the Thames Valley area and have been hurt by crime. We will work with you to help you get your confidence back if you are struggling after experiencing a crime such as bullying, sexual abuse, physical assault, domestic violence or cyber-crime. Being hurt by crime can be tough. You might be coping with difficult feelings such as being angry, frightened, upset or guilty. You might want someone to talk to who will not judge you. Our Project Workers can:

  • Listen to you, and help you think about what you might want to do next
  • Give you space to talk about what has happened and what you’re going through
  • Help you think about keeping safe
  • Give you information about reporting a crime and what might happen if you do report
  • Give you information about who else might be able to help you

We also have a new resource for young people with a focus on online issues. Please see www.safestories.org.uk

This website includes video stories demonstrating some of the issues faced by young people as a result of new technologies, and offers simple advice and signposting for further help.
