Konnect supports victims of crime by offering both emotional advice and reassurance, and practical support to enhance security and reduce risk.
We are a member of the Victims Directory which is funded by Devon and Cornwall Police and Crime Commissioners Office (PCC) and managed by the Victim Care Unit (VCU).
Konnect has received 10 referrals to date and supported all of them through a variety of scenarios, ranging from advocating for them with local authority or other public sector organisations to support around matters of fraud.
The VCU has recently set up a specialist fraud unit and Konnect, as a preferred provider, has supported 2 fraud victims thus far.
This support hub is aligned closely with the restorative justice hub and the Konnect team will act as facilitators if restorative justice is identified as a desired outcome by the client.
