Essex Victims’ Gateway
VICTIMS in Essex now have direct access to support, information and advice at the click of a button thanks to a new website launched by Nick Alston, Police and Crime Commissioner for Essex.
The website, www.essexvictimsgateway.org offers access to the many local support groups for people who have been subjected to crimes ranging from rape to anti-social behaviour.
Victims can type their postcode into the site’s search facility to find out more about the support available locally to them. Alternatively people can click on a specific crime type – such as hate crime or anti-social behaviour – which will take them to a page featuring case studies, frequently asked questions as well as live links and contact details for support groups.
