SaferSpaces: Victim Support

Victim Support

The White Paper topic of Victim Support deals with the practical and emotional support to victims and witnesses of crime. Following an incident of victimisation, victim support is the provision of services related to legal matters and social justice but also the empathic assistance to a victim to restore and encourage self-fulfilment and confidence, in order to achieve a similar state as before the crime.

In this section you can learn and discuss about the following:
• Comprehensive framework promoting and upholding the rights of victims of crime and violence.
• Delivery of high quality services for victims of crime and violence.
• And other relevant topics.
