Description

The service will be to provide:
– Emotional support
– Practical support
– Safety planning
– Building self- confidence and independence
– Assistance when applying for compensation
– Referrals and signposting to other relevant agencies
– Awareness raising sessions and briefings with professionals and local organisations

It is expected the service will be delivered in the ethos of agree principles around;

• A service for all victims in accordance with the Equality Act 2010
• Vulnerability not crime-type
• Proactive consent

The service would need to really focus on improving the ability of people to self-refer, where being independent from the police is key to being seen as a credible and able service that can be confidential and able to meet the needs of people that come forward. The aim is to develop a very strong public image to encourage self-referrals.
Partnership with the police will also be vital, as the majority of victims contact the police first as the first point of call. Frontline officers will deliver victim support information and an offer of referral at first point of contact.
