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 making 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 more how to share your story.
3. Join our new Victims and Witnesses Participation Group
We will soon be creating our Victims and Witnesses Participation Group, which is open to anyone who has been affected by crime. You could get involved by:
- Explaining what you think is important when it comes to support
- Sharing your views about improving criminal justice processes
- Checking that materials, including leaflets and letters, are what people affected by crime are looking for
You can choose how much you get involved with the group and you can also change your mind about getting involved at any time.
The first step is being part of our confidential mailing list, and we will keep in touch with you about different options coming up.
