Cost of living support
We are providing support for residents facing the cost of living crisis.
Being a victim of crime can be life-changing, and how people are treated within the justice system can make a huge difference to their ability to cope and recover.
Following extensive stakeholder engagement with victims and victims’ groups, these proposals focus on a number of key areas: raising awareness and accessibility; providing clearer information on victims’ rights to access practical and emotional support; strengthening communication and taking account of the victim’s preferences; and increasing the voice of the victim through providing more flexibility in the Victim Personal Statement process.
In-line with the Ministry of Justice's statutory obligations, they are now undertaking this second consultation, which includes a draft revised version of the Code.
This consultation runs from 5 March to 28 May 2020.
