You are not alone. If have been impacted by crime, you can refer yourself to one of Belong’s Services. If you work for an organisation that works with people impacted by crime, you can refer someone on their behalf. If we are not able to accept a referral, one of Belong’s Practitioners will aim to help you to find the support that you need.
We aim to contact everybody who makes a referral within 72 hours. Please note that if you need urgent help, you can call Samaritans free on 116 123. For any sort of emergency, call 999. For non-emergency medical enquiries, call NHS 111 or contact your GP.
Have you been impacted by crime, either as a perpetrator or victim? Often, victims of crime describe feeling unsatisfied with the criminal justice process- feeling unheard, not included, and as if their needs are not considered.
Restorative Justice gives victims of crime the opportunity to ask questions about what happened, explain the impact on them, and be part of the next steps.
You can find out more about Restorative Justice from an initial conversation with one of Belong’s Restorative Justice Practitioners. From an initial conversation, you aren’t committing to engaging in a restorative justice process – and the conversation can be helpful in itself.
You can contact us on the form below or call 07766004149.
You can self-refer or refer somebody else for mentoring if they are serving a community sentence, on license, or are due to be released from custody.
For further information, or to refer yourself or another person to Belong for mentoring please contact Belong’s Service Coorindator, Matthew:
