Our achievements in criminal justice
We believe that our campaigns over the last 35 years have helped significantly improve how victims and witnesses are treated
Our charity has achieved many policy successes - some quite significant. Victims' and witnesses' interests are now high on the political agenda and we believe that's largely thanks to our campaigning efforts over the last 37 years.
In recent years, a wide range of new procedures and legislation have been announced that affect victims and witnesses. This shows that, one by one, the rights we have identified have been recognised and action has been taken to begin to address them.
Some of the key areas where we have contributed to improvements in victims' and witnesses' include:
We will, of course, continue to work closely with everyone involved in the introduction of these new measures to make sure that they are as effective as possible.
