What we can do:

 

  • Source the cheapest flights for you - in some cases free - for travel in the next day or two or up to a year in advance.

  • Arrange complete travel with competitive accommodation, hire cars etc

  • Provide full information on visas, innoculations etc. when you need to travel.

  • Arrange low cost translations, in some cases free of charge.

  • Provide you with a list of English speaking lawyers and other key contacts

  • Manage the media for you and issue statements on your behalf.

  • Make every effort to recover property left behind after a crime.

  • Assist you with repatriation of victims medically unable to fly.

  • Advise and assist you with options for burial or cremation after a death

  • Put you in touch with a wide range of specialist charities working specifically for victims like you.

  • Provide fundraising campaigns and access to grants if available.

  • Liaise with police and government at home and overseas on your behalf.

  • Do everything possible to ensure religious beliefs and ceremonies are upheld after death.

  • Provide limited legal advice - though we advocate appointing a lawyer in country after any crime.

  • Put you in touch with people who have been through the ordeal you are facing to share feelings and emotions.

  • Provide remote viewing facilities for overseas trials here in the UK where allowed by the court.

  • Try our best to solve the problem nobody else can.

What we can't do:

 

  • Pay for your travel - we have a small discretionary relief fund which we use for dire emergency cases when fund allow.

  • Interfere with, pressurise or campaign against a country's police or legal system - but we can make sure everything that can be done is done.

  • Pay for repatriation - but we can arrange the best services for you.

  • Get someone off a charge or out of prison - but we can make sure they are being looked after as best as they can be.

  • Guarantee the services of or endorse any of the lawyers or other professionals we provide details of - though we do our best to provide trusted service information.

  • Pay for translations or interpreters - but we do have an extensive group of volunteer translators who do work for us free. Court-admissable documents do cost money but we can arrange best prices.

  • Lobby government or other authorities to change the law or processes.

  • Pay for funerals or cremations - but we can help you fundraise to meet the costs.

  • Cover costs of emergency travel documents or emergency passport / visa applications - but we will help you through the process as quickly as possible.

  • Guarantee the provision of a service we have arranged where the non provision is out of our hands - though we do make every effort to avoid this and ensure full contingency plans are in place.

  • Guarantee your safety if you travel to a known dangerous location against ours and government advice.
