Victim Support Thurles

Victim-SupportIf you are a victim of crime,  support is readily available in Thurles.

Victim Support is a community based organisation established in 1985, to help with victims of crime. The ultimate objective is to facilitate victims in availing of appropriate services and to avoid causing secondary victimisation. If a victim of crime has to attend court and if they so wish, a professionally trained member of Victim Support will accompany them and will stay with them, throughout the trial.

The recent refurbishment of the Thurles Courthouse includes, for the first time, a Victim Support Room. This affords victims an opportunity to communicate in a caring , confidential and structured manner.

Thurles Victim Support branch was launched in April 1998 and with the assistance and co-operation of the Thurles Gardaí.  They continue to offer relevant services at local level.

Sincere gratitude is extended by victims and the Victim Support organisation to our local Gardaí and also to the Commission set up by the Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform.
