Victim Support is Newfield’s chosen charity of 2021. They play an incredibly important role on the Isle of Man (like many others) in providing valuable support to our residents.
In practice, the charity offers free and confidential help to victims and witnesses of crime, their family, and friends. This can be practical and emotional welfare support through Victim Support and/or support at court through the Witness Service. This support is available to adults, children, and young people affected by crime, death by road traffic accidents, unusual deaths, suicide, domestic and sexual violence, and abuse. Victim Support is independent from the Police, Courts and other Government departments and the crime can be historic and also does not have to have been reported to the Police.
We will be organising fundraising events with our employees through out this year to raise as much as we can for this essential charity!
