About the charity
Escaping Victimhood is a charitable company that was founded by criminal justice professionals concerned that there was little robust support available to victims of crime after the court processes have been completed.
Professionals working in the field of criminal justice or working to support victims of crime know that, for many people, a traumatic event such as the murder of a close relative or a personal attack, can have repercussions far beyond the immediate impact. Such an event can often become a defining moment in a victim’s life, with consequences impacting on every aspect of day to day living, such as the ability to work, physical and mental health, relationships with family members and so on. The on-going consequences of victimhood can create a ripple effect, with one crime affecting many people.
Escaping Victimhood has been set up to help people whose lives have been fragmented by the trauma of serious crime to move from being a victim to a more positive future. We are keen to work in partnership with other organisations.
