Welcome to Victim Support Ayrshire, part of Victim Support Scotland, an independent voluntary organisation, which provides free confidential, practical and emotional support and information to victims, witnesses and anyone affected by crime.

Trained staff and volunteers deliver our service throughout Scotland and here in Ayrshire there are three community based Victim Services in North, East and South Ayrshire and two court based Witness Services (at Ayr and Kilmarnock Sheriff Courts).

Please feel free to make contact with your nearest service to find out how we can help.

We are not a government agency or part of the police and you don't have to report a crime to the police to get our help.

You can contact us any time after the crime has happened, whether it was yesterday, last week or several years ago.

Have you been affected by crime? We are an independent, charitable organisation, providing free, confidential, practical and emotional support and information.
