The service supports Victims and survivors to be resilient and in doing so are less likely to be re-victimised; empowered to cope and recover from crime and anti-social behaviour by timely and effective victim-centred support from local services, families and communities.
Victims do not have to report a crime to access the service. Victims of both recorded and self-reported crime are tracked at all points in their journey and given access to information, practical support and advice and where appropriate, referral to ‘cope, recover and empowerment’ support services in their local communities.
Victim CARE ensures that the support will be victim-centred and outcome focussed. It will ensure that the needs of the victim are considered and supported at every stage of the criminal justice process.
The service is provided by a team of experienced professional case workers, giving one to one support to victims of crime and ASB. The team is supported by a committed and highly trained team of volunteers. The aim is to improve victims’ experience with the criminal justice system and associated support services.
Types of support
Victims of crime and anti-social behaviour benefit from enhanced help and support with a new-style service, designed around the needs of victims to help them cope and recover from their experience and empower them to become more resilient
- Tailored emotional and practical support, advocacy and restorative justice determined through a ‘needs assessment’, focusing on the level of harm caused by the crime and the vulnerability of the victim.
- A dedicated Caseworker providing one to one support to each victim, making it less stressful for them and reducing the number of times they are asked to tell their story
- Access to restorative justice services arranged by the Caseworker, which could include facilitating dialogue with a person with a conviction. Restorative justice brings those harmed by crime or conflict and those responsible for the harm into communication, enabling everyone affected by a particular incident to play a part in repairing the harm and finding a positive way forward.

Scams affect the lives of many people across Nottinghamshire. They come in many forms and it is impossible to know about all of them.
Anyone can fall for a scam, but some people are more vulnerable due to their circumstances and are therefore more likely to be targeted by criminals. People who lose money to scams often also experience loneliness, shame and social isolation. There is no need to feel ashamed, there are agencies that can provide help and advice.
People who reply to scams aren't stupid. We know that the criminals are very clever and know what to say to get money out of anyone. Once someone has replied once, we know that their contact details are passed on to other criminal gangs and they will then receive other scams.
Some scams are specifically targeted at businesses, for example publishing scams. Some information about business scams can be found on the Business Companion website.
Our Trading Standards team works with many organisations including Citizens Advice, Nottinghamshire Police and the Alzheimer’s Society to raise awareness of the issues around scams and provide advice and support.
If you are a carer or have an older relative, please be on the lookout for any signs that they have been scammed. Each situation is different but typical signs could include:
- if you have elderly relatives, friends or neighbours, you can help protect them from scams by becoming a Friend Against Scams. This is a national scheme which is free to join and includes an online awareness session or local workshop event
- receiving lots of unwanted calls
- unusual transactions on bank statements
- becoming unwilling to go out (just in case they miss the next phone call telling them what they have won)
- no money to buy food / pay bills
- lots of mail about prize draws, lotteries, or unwanted catalogues
- unwilling to throw any old post away.
If you receive a phone call or letter that causes you concern, talk about it with a friend. Share your concerns. They may have received it too. It's always worth talking to your bank and letting them know your concerns.
Types of scams
Scams can fall in to some broad categories and here are some examples:
- Doorstep: People call at your door telling you that a roof tile is loose, your driveway needs repairing, they can cut trees down cheaply, try to sell you a mattress or some fish etc. Find out more about doorstep callers.
- Telephone: Phone calls telling you that you need to pay an urgent bill and requesting your bank details, companies offering services to reduce you unwanted phone calls.
- Online: 'Copycat' websites selling services that are either free or cheaper via the official Government route.
- Post: Letters informing you that you have won a prize, psychics telling you they can predict harm is coming your way and for a fee they can protect you, catalogues promises you a prize if you place another order quickly.
If you receive lots of scam mail, you can help take a stand against scams by becoming a Scam Marshal. Scam Marshals share their own experiences by sending in their scam mail to a national team who use it to fight scams. You can register yourself or on behalf of someone else.

We advise you never to buy goods or services from a trader on your doorstep.
Don’t answer your door if you are not expecting a caller. If the person needs to contact you urgently, they will put a note through your door or have your contact details and be able to contact you via other means.
If you are expecting a caller:
- use a window or a door viewer to see who the caller is
- check the identity of the caller. Do not let the caller into your house until you have verified their ID
- do not rely on the number they give you as it may not be genuine. Verify their identity by ringing their employer using the telephone number listed in the phone book or look for the number on a bill
- if you have any concerns or suspicions then ask the caller to leave, close and lock your door. If the caller will not leave and tries to gain entry then call the Police on 999.
