Criminal damage

Criminal damage means destroying or causing damage to someone else’s belongings or property.

Someone causing damage to things that belong to you can be scary. It can have a lasting effect and you may not feel as safe as you used to. If you have witnessed the incident you might feel scared as a result.

Even if the items damaged or destroyed weren’t expensive, they might have meant something to you which cannot be replaced.

You may feel angry, frightened or upset following the incident and that is completely normal. If you are unsure about what to do or if you simply need someone to talk to, we are here to help and you can talk to us in confidence.

If you would like to, you can meet with one of our friendly staff in person or you could take part in activities with other young people who have had similar experiences to you.

We will support you in whatever way suits you best. We are here to help you get back on your feet so please get in touch.

It doesn’t matter if you haven’t told anyone about your experience before or if it happened a long time ago. You can find out more about the support we offer on our ‘What we do’ page.
