This report provides a critical assessment of the support services available across the five areas, placing these within the essential wider context of national policy. The findings are based upon the views of those victims, service providers and criminal justice professionals who contributed to the research. This report does not represent the views of the Police and Crime Commissioners, but those of the authors and the recommendations made are based upon the findings and evidence gained from the research data. Whilst it may not be feasible for the areas to adopt and implement all the suggestions made, it is hoped that each PCC area can draw upon the findings and adopt an approach which is appropriate and suitable to meet the local needs of their area, within the resources that are available.
