We want to make sure the needs of victims and witnesses are at the heart of a modern justice system. That is why it is vital we learn as much as possible from the experience of real life victims and survivors of crime.

We have re-established the Victims’ Panel so we can get direct feedback from victims and we are keen to continue and develop their valuable contribution. The Victims’ Panel reconvened on the 6 February 2017.
