Greater Manchester Crime Support Line Toolkit

Published: 21/12/2020

A new helpline offering support services to victims of crime in Greater Manchester launched on Monday 21 December 2020.

It follows an announcement made by the Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham and Deputy Mayor Bev Hughes last week after the publication of Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS)’s report 'Greater Manchester Police - Victim Service Assessment (VSA)'.

The Greater Manchester Crime Support Line will provide support to victims of crime who may have concerns about how their crime has been recorded by Greater Manchester Police (GMP) or would like support to help them cope and recover.

The support line is contactable on freephone number 0808 196 8416.

We encourage partners to help communicate this new support line across their social media and other communication channels to ensure as many affected victims of crime are aware of the service and the support available to them.

Vulnerability Communications Toolkit 

Published: 02/06/2020

This toolkit is to support partners in amplifying Greater Manchester-wide messaging in relation to how we are working together to keep people safe, particularly those residents who are more at risk of domestic abuse, exploitation, and other crimes that affect the more vulnerable in our communities.

With families spending more time at home, there is an increased risk of incidents such as domestic abuse towards both children and adults. Support which has previously been in place has changed for many, and is potentially inaccessible for some.

The key audiences include victims and survivors, their families and friends and neighbours, children and young people who may be witnesses or perpetrators, and perpetrators themselves.

Thank you for your support.
