This paper seeks views on how to provide better
emotional and practical support to victims. We
want to build on the enormous contribution
which is already made by community
organisations and tens of thousands of volunteers,
many through Victim Support. However, there are
a number of ways in which this could be taken
forward, through different models of providing
Victim Care Units; the paper sets these out.
This paper is genuinely consultative. Our objective
is to draw on the expertise and experience that
many individuals and organisations have in this
field, in order to ensure that we meet the needs
of victims in the most effective way possible.
From our initial analysis we consider that there
are real gains to be made through taking a hard
look at the way support is currently provided. (excerpt)
