Five promises to victims & witnesses

Our Five promises to victims and witnesses campaign has been shortlisted for an award

Victim Support is proud to be shortlisted for two prestigious Charity Times Awards 2013.

We've been nominated for Charity of the Year in recognition of our high quality work in helping hundreds of thousands of people recover from the effects of crimes and give evidence in court.

An addition to this, the team behind the Five Promises to victims and witnesses campaign has been nominated for Campaigning Team of the Year, after convincing 133 police and crime commissioner candidates, including 33 who were later elected, to make five key commitments to put victims first.

This is clear evidence of how Victim Support staff and volunteers showed great energy and persistence over many weeks to win over national and local figures to the cause.

Javed Khan, Chief Executive of Victim Support said: "We're honoured to be shortlisted in two categories.

"Every day our staff and volunteers do an outstanding job helping victims and witnesses and championing their cause so it’s great that this work is recognised outside the charity."

The Charity Times Awards, now in its fourteenth year, recognises leaders within charities who are responsible for co-ordinating much of the activity throughout the UK.

Winners will be announced on 16 October 2019 at the Awards Gala Dinner in central London.
