Community Points are local organisations who help local people and who can also provide extra help to victims of crime. Community Points are quality assured by Nottinghamshire Victim CARE to help victims.
Our Community Points can help identify if you would benefit from support, discuss what kind of support you could access, signpost you to other supporting agencies or refer you to a Victim CARE Caseworker. Through their close relationship with Nottinghamshire Victim CARE, Community Points might also be able to offer access to target hardening items, such as personal alarms or window alarms.
Since 2017, Nottinghamshire Victim CARE have engaged with over 100 local organisations making them aware of the Community Point programme. As of the end of April 2019 we have 32 accepted Community Point organisations across Nottingham City, and all county boroughs and districts.
