The Impact of Criminal Damage
If someone has deliberately destroyed or caused permanent damage to something that belongs to you, then you are a victim of criminal damage.
It can be really upsetting when something that is important to you (maybe something you’ve treasured or saved up for) is deliberately damaged or broken by other people. It can also make you feel scared or unsafe, if the damage happens to your home.
Remember that it’s never your fault. Only the offender is to blame and nobody has the right to damage or destroy your things.
