Review of Victims’ Services – report now published!

In June this year, I published a post inviting people’s views on existing support services for victims of crime.  The Warwickshire Police and Crime Panel had set up a small Task and Finish Group to undertake an extensive review of victim support services in the county and to evaluate the extent of victims’ needs and expectations being met by existing provision in Warwickshire.

The Group members gathered and received evidence from a wide range of sources, including local representatives of support services and victims of crime. As a result, 19 evidence-based recommendations have been identified to address a number of thematic issues that relate to the full range of victim support services in Warwickshire. Members believe that the recommendations will help to place victims at the heart of both the voluntary and criminal justice sector and bring greater sustainability to the array of voluntary organisations, who contribute significantly to the recovery of victims of crime in Warwickshire.

A copy of the report and recommendations is available here. Victims front page

The Task and Finish Group will present its report to the Police and Crime Panel on 21st November (click here to access meeting details and the agenda). Following this, the report and recommendations will be submitted to the Police and Crime Commissioner, who is now responsible for the delivery of victim support service.

The Task and Finish Group would like to pay tribute to the commitment of Warwickshire’s existing victims’ support services, volunteers and support staff and express it gratitude to those representatives and victims of crime who gave up their time to contribute to this review.
