Victims Organisations Collaboration Forum Scotland
The Victims’ Organisation Collaboration Forum Scotland (VOCFS) is a group of victims’ and survivors’ organisations that champion the voices and experiences of those that have been affected by crime. The group advocates for positive and lasting improvements within Scotland’s criminal justice system, informed by what victims and survivors tell us they want to see change.
