Supporting Victims

A wide range of projects are funded by the Commissioner to help victims of specific types of crime, some of which can be seen on the other pages in this section, as well as the main services provided by Victim Support.

Achieving the right outcome for victims and survivors of crime is a central focus of the Warwickshire Police and Crime Plan. To do this we must have the right levels of service and support. Treating victims and witnesses with respect is vital for public confidence in the criminal justice system and to achieving justice effectively.

The most significant area of commissioning for PCCs is for local support services for victims of crime. The Ministry of Justice devolved responsibility for the commissioning of the majority of local services for victims of crime to PCCs in 2014.

A full list of the projects funded by the PCC can be found on our Grants and Commissioned Services page.

What are your rights under the Victims’ Code?

The Victims’ Code explains the rights that everyone can expect to receive as a victim of crime.

Whoever you are and whatever the crime, you have the right to be informed about the criminal justice process and the support available.

Victim Support

These services ensure that all victims of crime can access support, particularly those who are vulnerable and need enhanced support.
