Young Victims of Crime
Jigsaw4u are part of a multi-agency partnership providing support for young victims of crime in Merton.
Jigsaw4u are offering specialised support for victims of crime aged 11 to 17. Support will be independent, confidential and offered on a one-to-one and group basis. Priority is given to young people who have experienced violence, intimidation or threats (on-line or otherwise).
The aim of the service is to help young people overcome the effects of the crime they suffered by working around the practical and emotional damage it caused them. Jigsaw4u measure the impact of this work through the Outcomes Star measuring tool.
Referrals are usually made by the Police, Social Care and the Merton Youth Justice Service; however young people, their families or schools may also self-refer.
