Where to go to for support, assistance and advice?

In some cases the victim can’t get compensation from the suspect of the assault. In that case, there is a possibility to get compensation from af fund: Schadefonds Geweldsmisdrijven.
Protecting the children
This organisation can also explain to you how you can press charges. They will explain to you how to ask for a restraining order or report any unsafe situation of children to Veilig Thuis. They provide this information to people who are the victim of the assault. But also for people who are otherwise involved.
