MOPAC has commissioned Victim Support to provide interventions to adult and children who have been victims of crime, including knife crime, as part of the integrated Victim and Witness Service.

In addition, Victim Support is commissioned by the Ministry of Justice to provide support to families who have been bereaved by Homicide. Victim Support provides interventions such as emotional support and casework to affected families for as long as they need it.
