We call people caring in this incredibly demanding role, 3rd party victims of crime because they are forgotten victims. They are parents, carers, children, close friends and partners who step in to care when the worst happens, often for decades.
Our work is changing lives. 100% of the people who have had support from Restitute say that their emotional well-being has increased and their ability to provide care and support for their loved one has improved.
Since being contacted by Resitute, my life has started to have some kind of meaning. I now feel I finally have the backup and support I have always needed. I’m getting positive information to help deal with my life and to support my family. – mum of a survivor of domestic violence.
Restitute also gives you a safe environment to offload all your worries, and as they are bound by confidentiality you know that whatever you need to say is kept safe by trust boundaries. This is always useful if you have found it hard at times to trust when trust has been abused in the past. – daughter of a survivor of sexual assault.
Quite honestly i dont think i would be where i am now without Restitute’s help.When i look back on where i was when Restitute came into my life and look at where i am now there is a huge difference in myself and my family for the better. – mum of a survivor of childhood sexual abuse.
