Supporting Justice is a Community Interest Company that began in 2013 (formerly called WKM solutions) and was started by Anne Warren, CEO with the aim of providing consultancy services specifically in issues affecting victims, witnesses and their needs.
Anne says “Working with victims has always been my passion. I want victims to get the best possible services and so I wanted to work with service delivery organisations and commissioners to make services better. Supporting Justice has been the vehicle that has helped me to do that. Starting as a small group of like minded people we now provide services to a whole range of clients and are developing innovative products that are helping to shape the sector”.
Since we started we have worked with a range of clients across the UK and in Europe. They include working with the Northern Ireland commission for victims and survivors to audit services, providing research and subject matter expertise to inform policy makers in Serbia, designing and developing services for Citizens Advice, providing training to 2,500 volunteer’s, supporting various organisations in the design of new services in competitive tendering.
In 2017 we took the decision to invest resources in developing products that would lead to improvements in the sector, In April 2017 we launched our Victims Choice Quality Mark framework and Victims Choice website. We are now working to encourage organisations to join us in our quest to professionalise the sector through adopting and delivering to our quality standards.
Supporting Justice brings unrivalled experience of the end to end victim and witness journey that includes the political, the policy and the operational environments. What makes us unique is that we have operated in the sector in a variety of senior and challenging roles for over twenty years.
