Victim Care Devon and Cornwall accredited member

South West Business Council

SWBC are working with the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner to deliver a support service to local businesses affected by crime. This service will enable businesses that have been affected by crime to receive advice and support in areas such as Security (premises), Insurance, Financial, Legal, HR, and IT (including cyber security). Key partners have been approved either through the Buy With Confidence scheme or through a relevant professional body.

SWBC is the only regional body that supports private sector businesses by operating at a strategic level across the south-west. SWBC is a not-for-profit organisation, sustained by private sector membership, and is unique because it provides bespoke and individual support to help organisations achieve their business priorities and aspirations. SWBC operates as a catalyst and an enabler, bringing opportunities to life by sharing strategic insight and information and brokering connections at a senior level where there is mutual benefit.

Whether a business wishes to report a crime or not, the diagnostic and signposting service is available for any type of business. The aim is to provide relevant information and guidance from professionals who work within the business community. Key areas include advice and support in:

* Security (premises)
* Insurance
* Financial
* Legal
* HR
* IT (including cybersecurity)

Victims of a crime against their business can be assured that their information and case will not be shared outside the scheme and they will receive a single point of contact before being signposted to a partner organisation. Where there are complex needs across several partner organisations, these key personnel will work collaboratively to ensure needs are effectively met.

Business owners are encouraged to utilise this service so that they can receive the necessary support for themselves, their business and their employees. Information and support are available to re-build business confidence which, in turn, will enable the business to continue in the local community. We encourage you to take advantage of the support that is available so that, as a business community, we work together to overcome the affects that crime may have had on your business.
