  • The introduction of a Victims' Commissioner in Scotland

    Created: 09/09/2021

    Victim Support Scotland's (VSS) new report makes a case for the introduction of a Victims' Commissioner in Scotland.

    VSS argues that a Victims' Commissioner role should protect and promote the rights of people affected by crime, using lived experience to transform Scotland’s justice system and scrutinise its agencies. View this infographic for more information on the role.

    The report presents a strong case of why people affected by crime urgently require the introduction of a Victim’s Commissioner to advocate for their rights, provide oversight of criminal justice agencies and uphold their rights under the Victims’ Code for Scotland.
