Petition Don’t abandon victims of crime – a national backbone of support is essential to help those in need

More details

We the people petition the Government to reconsider proposals in its consultation document 'Getting it right for victims and witnesses', to purchase help for victims and witnesses through the new police and crime commissioners.

Dismantling the current system will lead to patchy and inconsistent help for those most in need of support.

Victims of crime deserve effective, quality support in their time of need, wherever they live. A national service delivered locally is the only way to secure this.

Don’t let victims suffer twice.
