Police Scotland and VSS seek views on crime ‘aftercare’

17 June, 2021

Police Scotland and Victim Support Scotland are running a joint survey aimed at improving the support that is place for people affected by crime throughout Scotland.

Respondents are invited to give individual views about how Police Scotland can best support victims and witnesses when it comes to providing immediate support and information in the aftermath of a crime.

The anonymous, confidential survey takes ten minutes to complete and includes questions about referral to support services for people affected by crime. It also asks about the Victim Care Card, which provides details of a crime, aftercare information and important contact details.

Victim Support Scotland is dedicated to empowering everyone affected by crime through high-quality support and care, as well as transforming victims’ experience of the justice system.

Views expressed in survey responses will help to inform and shape future Police Scotland aftercare services.

The survey will run until 31 August 2021 can be completed here.  BSL users can complete the survey here.

Victim Support Scotland is here to help anyone affected by crime. If you need support, please contact us via our helpline (0800 160 1985), our webchat service or our contact form.
