Improving the Victims Experience of the Criminal Justice System

A revised victims code, a chief coroner, PCC’s, a victims minister and commissioner, changes to CICA and probation and European Legislation all promise to improve the victims experience of the Criminal Justice System. Are those of us who come into contact with victims as part of our roles ready for the changes?

DATE:       Thursday 26th September 2013
TIME:       10.00am - 4.00pm (Reg from 9.30)
VENUE:     Hamilton House, London, WC1H 9BD

"I’ve made no bones about my intention to be a tough Justice Secretary. That means I want our justice system to be firm, fair and transparent. One in which the public have confidence. A system that punishes offenders properly. A system that supports the hard work done by our police. A system which looks after the victims of crime" - Rt Hon. Chis Grayling - October 2012

“The revised Victims' Code will tell victims what they can expect from the moment they report a crime to the end of a trial, and who to demand help from if it is not provided. At each stage the revised Code will set out the entitlements for victims as well as the duties of our Criminal Justice System services. As a statutory document it will allow victims to hold the criminal justice system to account” - Helen Grant - Minister for Justice, Victims’ and the Courts and Minister for Women and Equalities - May 2013
