Criminal neglect: no justice beyond criminal justice
Criminal neglect: no justice beyond criminal justice, published on 19 February 2019, marks the beginning of a campaign by Victim Support to encourage policy makers across all areas of government and social provision to recognise and provide for the needs of the victims of crime.
The report focuses on three areas of social provision - housing, healthcare, and financial support - and highlights how official agencies are still largely unaware of the special needs of victims of crime, let alone providing appropriate services. Victim Support's research indicates that similar problems are found across other areas such as employment, education and services for children.
