Supporting victims and witnesses to crime

6th February 2024

If you are a victim or witness to crime then you can expect certain standards from criminal justice agencies such as the police and the courts.

You have the right to be treated with kindness, dignity and respect.

The UK Government has launched a new website to provide information and support to victims and witnesses to crime, and their family and friends.

A list of local contacts and support providers is also available on our website.
