The Victims’ Voice campaign is running from 1st May-5th July. We want to hear from victims and witnesses about their experiences and views of criminal justice agencies, the support services that work within it, and how they can be improved.
If we were to build a new criminal justice system in Northamptonshire, shaped by what victims and witnesses want, giving them choices, giving them back control, giving them a voice, supporting them in overcoming their victimisation and rebuilding their lives... what might this look like?
There are several ways you can take part in this campaign and complete the Victim's Voice survey. Click here for details.
