Today, the Victims’ Commissioner launches her new-look website.
Baroness Newlove said: “My website is packed with information on the concerns I care most about – which I know many of you share. You’ll be able to browse our latest news, reports, tweets and meeting notes.”
“One outstanding feature, which I hope users will find indispensable, is the ‘Victims journey‘. Here we tackle the topics victims of crime actively search for, advising them about their own criminal justice journey.”
“For example, I’ll cover everything from how to report a crime to preparing for trial, giving evidence and how to avoid bumping into the offender in court, parole and how to claim criminal injury compensation. I’ll also offer my personal perspective, along with some empowering tips to help victims cope with the daily challenges they face.”
We also aim to celebrate good practice. One of the best ways to help practitioners is by sharing real-life stories, ideas, insights and achievements that other service providers may wish to follow.
Baroness Newlove said: “Fresh ideas and initiatives really go a long way in inspiring others, so I hope you will share what works well in your own field with our readership.”
Baroness Newlove said: “I am excited about my new website, and hope you’ll find it valuable, so let me know what you think.”
