We have launched a new Migrant Victim Support Project that provides specialised assistance for migrant and refugee victims of crime.
All victims of crime need support but we see first hand how migrants, asylum seekers, and refugees often need specific and sometimes more specialised support. They may be victims of crimes such as human trafficking, racism, hate crime, gender-based violence (GBV), human trafficking, labour market exploitation, or modern slavery. Victims may not know where to turn for help and sometimes language, immigration, or cultural barriers are a factor. Certain groups are particularly vulnerable and already dealing with a complex range of challenges, including those who have fled their countries due to war or persecution. It can be extremely difficult for people living in direct provision or other challenging circumstances to seek help or know where to turn. That’s why this project is particularly important.
The Migrant Victim Support Project was developed to address the current gaps in service provision for victims of crime who have special protection needs. The project will work to overcome the significant barriers faced by migrants and refugees with regard to accessing justice and appropriate support services.
