Help shape Birmingham’s Victims’ Charter

Improving the support that is given to victims of crime and anti-social behaviour is a priority for Birmingham’s new Labour administration.

We’ve already honoured our pledge to give victims a voice, by appointing Longbridge Councillor Jess Phillips as the city’s first ever Victims’ Champion. You can find out more about the role of the Victims’ Champion by clicking here.

Jess is currently working with Birmingham’s Community Safety Partnership on a Victims’ Charter, which will set out the range of services available to victims, the standards of service they can expect and how they can access that vital support when they need it.

It’s important that the Charter properly reflects the needs of victims, so the partnership are keen to hear the views of people who have been directly affected by crime and anti-social behaviour. You can help this work by taking part in this online survey.

Alternatively, written responses can be submitted to Victims’ Charter, BCSP, PO Box 11762, Birmingham, B3 3PL. Twitter is also being used, and messages should be sent to @victimschampion.

The deadline for responses is 19 November.
