  • About Us

    The Federation for Victim Assistance was founded in 2005 by Ms Máiread Fernane and Mr Derek Nally. We offer a range of services designed to assist victims in coping with the effects of crime. We also promote awareness and campaign across a broad range of issues concerning Victims of Crime. 

    We are a voluntary organisation structured in County and District Branches around the country. All branches are governed by the constitution of the Federation for Victim Assistance.  Our Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organisation and all are fully trained and Garda Vetted.
