Tell us about your experiences

If you have been affected by crime, regardless of whether you have used Victim Support Services or not, we want to hear from you.

Your views and experience could make a powerful contribution to facilitating positive change within Scotland’s justice system.

You can share your experiences, comments and feedback in three ways:

1. Give us feedback about support services you received

We welcome feedback on our services as well as other services you have received. You may have used our community or court-based services directly and we want your honest feedback on this.

2. Share your story to help people affected by crime

Victim Support Scotland wants victims and witnesses of crime to be at the heart of justice in Scotland. Your stories help us to ensure victim and witness voices are heard. They are also help other people who have had similar experiences to feel less alone.

We are looking for people who would like to share their stories for use within our training, lobbying, campaigning, website and media work. Individual stories will always be used anonymously, unless you give us permission otherwise. Find out how to share your story.

3. Join our new Victims and Witnesses Participation Group (known as VSS Local Reference Group)

We have started a new pilot group in Edinburgh, Lothian and Borders to give people a space where they can share their input and feedback about various aspects of the criminal justice system.

You can choose how much you get involved with the group and you can also change your mind about getting involved at any time.
