Putting Victims and Survivors First

I pledge to put the needs of those that are the victims or survivors of crime at the heart of my work as Police and Crime Commissioner.

I will ensure improved and more consistent services for the victims, survivors and witnesses who suffer most from crime.

I will ensure they get the right help to cope and recover at every point of their journey.

Further develop the Victim Advice Line – ensuring victims have access to the right support to cope and recover.

Increase further the funding for survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault.  Working with the NHS, Local Government and Central Government to ensure a joined up approach to support victims and survivors.
