Victim Support Malta
Victim Support Malta (VSM) is a registered Non-Governmental Organisation which provides support and assistance to victims of crime, such as theft, burglary, cyber crime, domestic violence, sexual assault, harassment, physical assault and hate crime.
The services provided by VSM include the provision of emotional support to assist victims in overcoming trauma following a crime; information and support pertaining to the relative criminal procedures (e.g. the victims’ right to request compensation and to access forms of protection provided by the law); and practical assistance (e.g. liaison with the police, or other ancillary matters).
Financial support needed for Victim Support Malta
As an NGO which supports victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and those bereaved by suicide, support is vital, because the number of victims is increasing on a monthly basis. VSM relies solely on donations to survive, so to be able to continue to offer much needed psychological support to victims, financial support is critical.
