Supporting Victims: Content Hub

Catch22 support victims of crime across nine regions in the UK. We worked with our operational teams to produce materials for anyone who works with young or adult victims.

08 May 2018

While victim services are now well embedded in all regions, much can still be done to improve the experience victims have after an incident and to promote understanding of what they face amongst professionals and the wider public.

We recently used our frontline expertise to write a report, The Changing Needs of Victims: and How to Support Them Better. The report features insight into crime, what victims need from support services, and our recommendations for how services can engage victims and the community.

We’ve pulled out some of the materials from this report and created posters, which you are free to share with your networks and use yourselves. We will be adding materials that our services produce on an on going basis.

So far we have created:

The National Picture: A graphic showing which demographics are most likely to be victims of crime across the country.

New Offences 1 and New Offences 2: Looking at emerging crime areas across the UK including: moped enabled crime, acid attacks and knife crime.

  

Google Trends: a look at the support people are searching for.

Our Recommendations: Our six recommendations for anyone developing a victim service.
