My Support Space is a free online resource designed by the independent charity Victim Support to help you manage the impact that crime has had on you.
You can work through a series of interactive guides which address your specific needs. The guides are designed to be completed in your own time and at your own pace. You can save your progress and revisit where you left off at any time.
There's also information about where and how you can access further support, and the opportunity to register with SilverCloud, an online therapy system.
My Support Space is also available for those supporting someone after they’ve experienced crime or trauma, for example friends, family members, colleagues or neighbours.
When registering for an account, you can select that you're a supporter rather than a victim or witness of crime. You will then have access to guides that have been designed to help you support a loved one.
My Support Space is for people aged over 16 who have experienced crime and need help to cope and move forwards.
It is designed for people who are experiencing a low to moderate impact after crime. For people who are experiencing a much more severe impact after crime, or who are at risk, this online resource should only be used when you are already in touch with a Victim Support caseworker.
The content is designed to help you reflect on your feelings after crime and understand how you can support yourself during a difficult time. The interactive guides feature videos, techniques, activities and tips to help you explore each topic. You can also create an online diary to help you keep track of your progress and record what works for you.
If you've been affected by crime you can access My Support Space regardless of whether you have reported it to the police or not.
My Support Space is a secure online resource. It uses two-factor authentication when you log back in to ensure that you're the only person who can access your account, even if someone knows your password.
