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:
Stalking- Support For Victims. Stalking is repeated behaviour that makes you feel unsafe or distressed. Our team in Hertfordshire produced this quick guide for anyone who thinks they may be a victim.
The National Picture: A graphic showing which demographics are most likely to be victims of crime across the country.
Google Trends: a look at the support people are searching for.
Our Recommendations: Our six recommendations for anyone developing a victim service.
