Our Vision, Mission & Values

What does Victim Support Scotland stand for?


Surviving Crime by Making People Stronger

Through our services, we can help to lessen the impact of crime upon individuals and communities.


Our mission is supporting people affected by crime and keeping them at the heart of justice in Scotland.


We are committed to upholding the following values which lie at the heart of victims’ and witnesses’ needs:


We give you time to talk, recognise how you are feeling and help you to grow stronger.

People from Victim Support Scotland always make me feel welcome. They have been patient and always listened to what I said”

We will strive to provide the best possible service, yet continue to improve and shape our services in accordance with the needs and expectations of people affected by crime.


“My support was nothing short of outstanding and looking back I think that without Victim Support Scotland I wouldn’t be where I am now; it’s an amazing organisation.”
