More than 306 new victims and witnesses were referred to the Victim Support charity during the last year.

At its annual meeting recently, the organisation’s chairman David Craine said he was honoured to be its leader.

‘The organisation provides a unique service to victims of crime in the Isle of Man and during the year we have continued to excel at giving that support and advice to victims of crime and witnesses in court proceedings,’ he said.

The bulk of the charity’s work is connected with physical and sexual assaults.

He said they had benefited from meetings with their counterparts in the England, Ireland, Scotland and the Channel Islands.

‘All these forums provide invaluable information to keep us up to date with the latest thinking on victim support. Grateful thanks must also go to our volunterers,’ he said.

Former High Bailiff and patron of the charity, Michael Moyle, said he was honoured to be involved and echoed Mr Craine’s praise for the volunteers.
