Lancashire Victim Services set to support Pride celebrations

Lancashire Victim Services Pride

The Pride celebrations come back to Blackpool on Saturday, June 11 after two years of online celebrations due to the pandemic.

Claire Powell, Area Manager for LVS said: “We are really proud to support Blackpool Pride in person once again this year to highlight the support we can offer, particularly in relation to hate crime.

“Hate crime has a huge impact on individuals and can have long lasting effects. Being targeted simply because of who you are is unacceptable and if it has happened to you, we are here to support you.

“I would encourage anyone who needs support following any type of crime to contact us, we are here to help, regardless of whether the crime has been reported to the police”

Commissioner Andrew Snowden who will open the event alongside the mayor of Blackpool added:

“It’s great to see Blackpool Pride return as a live event and it’s a great opportunity to highlight the support available through Lancashire Victim Services.

“My number one priority is to lead the fight against crime and to keep all of Lancashire’s communities safe.

“However, where people are affected by crime it is important that they can access the best possible help and support which is why I commission LVS, and I would encourage anyone who needs support to contact the service.”

Anyone affected by crime can contact Lancashire Victim Services via the live chat at lancashirevictimservices.org, by calling 0300 323 0085 or by emailing info@lancashirevictimservices.org.
