leave a comment »

One of the notable changes to the criminal justice system over the last 15 years has been the increasing attention  given to supporting the victims of crime. On 29 Sept 2009, the Government  announced increased funding to Victim Support – the charity that provides the bulk of victim support services – to enable them to give detailed personal support to the families of victims of murder and manslaughter. It is estimated that each year there are around 3000 people directly affected by the murder or manslaughter of a family member.
