22 February marks EU Victims Day and awareness is being raised all around Europe, specifically by members of Victim Support Europe. Supporting Justice are getting involved through the following:
Victims Choice Website Announcement
Supporting Justice is proud to announce the development of Victims Choice, a new website designed to provide information to all victims of crime on victim services available in their area. Not only this, but users will be able to write anonymous reviews of the service that they have received, or read reviews by past service users to help them make an informed choice about who to seek support from. The Victims Choice website will officially launch in April 2017 and will list services provided in the UK
If you would like your service to be listed on the site, or you have accessed a service as a victim and would like to provide a review ahead of the launch date, then please contact us at: email@example.com
We are keen to work with others to see the website grow and ensure that victims can make confident choices in moments of crisis.
Event: Anyone can be a victim
No one expects to be a victim but all of us will be a victim or have a friend of family affected by crime in their lifetime. This might be a victim of burglary, assault, racist insults, fraud or even terrorism. If you were a victim would you know what to do? Would you know where to get help? Or could you help others?
On EU victims day 22 February 1-3pm take the time to find out more.
Supporting Justice is marking the day by running a drop in session in Room A.
- Hear about the experiences of victims
- The issues they face from reporting the crime to going to court
- What support is available if you were a victim and how to access it?
This event is open to everyone, those who know nothing or those who might have personal experience. It’s a drop in to chat and find out more about the work we do.
