IN AN EMERGENCY CALL 999

Coronavirus update

To all our visitors

We hope you are all keeping safe and well during these unprecedented times. Please make sure that you are aware of the latest information regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19):

At Veritas, we have already started operating our emergency protocol. We have suspended all face-to-face advocacy and support appointments and instead those appointments will be conducted via phone, WhatsApp, FaceTime, Skype or any other means of electronic communications to reduce the risk of spreading the infection to clients, staff and our communities.

This means that at present we are primarily working remotely. However, we will be using the digital tools at our disposal to help our clients, staff and volunteers to keep in contact, so hopefully you will not experience any major service disruption. We will also be stepping up our follow up calls and texts with our clients to reduce feelings of isolation and anxiety in the event of delays and/or disruption to frontline and emergency services.

These are difficult times and it is important that we all look after our own mental health and wellbeing. Mental Health UK have put together this advice guide:

And finally, if you are able to, The National Trust is making access to all of their gardens free so you can take the chance to enjoy the fresh air and natural environment, if it is safe to do so. Find out more information here:

Please keep checking our website for more information and tips on how to stay well during this difficult time.

Best regards,
The Veritas Justice Team

We are currently funded by the Office of the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner to provide advocacy casework to all victims of stalking across Sussex.
