Section 4 of the Code of Practice for Victims of Crime specifies that eligibility for enhanced services is based on whether the victim is vulnerable or intimidated (as defined by sections 16 and 17 of the Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Act 1999). The Home Office does not collect information centrally about how many or what percentage of all victims of crime are vulnerable or intimidated, or on how many or what percentage were provided with enhanced services under the code.
