Victims Awareness Week 2021

Victims Awareness Week takes place between 22 – 28 February, coinciding with European Day for Victims of Crime on Saturday 22 February.

It is Victim Support Scotland’s annual national awareness week which provides the opportunity to promote messages in support of those affected by crime by championing their voices, experiences and rights.

This year, they are launching their Your Space campaign, focusing on everyone’s right to support following a crime, under the Victims’ Code for Scotland.

The Your Space campaign highlights seven themes of the support VSS provides to people affected by crime and attending court as a witness. These themes explain the emotional and practical help, criminal justice system guidance, rights information and witness support that people can expect from VSS.
