The Government is committed to ensuring better service integration between statutory services like the NHS and the third sector to provide joined-up care and support victims need to cope and recover. As part of our current review of the Victims’ Code, we will ensure that support services are better tailored to meet the needs of victims. This includes raising awareness that victims can continue to access support services at the conclusion of their case and any appeals.
