Develop strong and effective law where victims of crime have RIGHTS to:
- Access Justice
To see the government uphold it's manifesto commit to a Victims' Law by placing victims’ rights firmly into statutory law and not dilute these rights by burying them in codes and guidelines that hold no weight.
To see a Criminal justice system that works for victims, protects the public and restores public trust in the effectiveness and equality of this system.
We welcome campaigners, charities and organisations that work with victims of crime to get involved and offer their expertise, support or interest in our campaign.
Many victims have had appalling experiences at the hands of the Criminal Justice System and feel as if they have been ‘re-victimised’ , ‘marginalised’ and ‘ re-abused’ by the justice process. We are therefore urging ALL victims of crime to have their voice heard and complete a victims rights online survey about their experience as a victim in the Criminal Justice System. This survey will give us evidence to prove that a victims code is not robust enough to protect the rights of victims and that a Victims Rights Law, supported by training of all agencies that engage with victims, is well overdue. We feel that a Victims Rights Law will re-address the imbalance of rights and create a justice system fair to all.
