When Commissioner Tipping was elected, he made a pledge to ensure that victims of crime are treated as people, not cases. Since then he has funded additional support services for victims of hate crime and anti-social behaviour, vulnerable victims and domestic abuse survivors.
You can find out more about how Commissioner Tipping has prioritised additional support for victims of domestic abuse HERE.
Commissioner Tipping took over responsibility for commissioning local services for victims in October 2014. To ensure his services gave victims the support they needed he commissioned Victims’ Views research to ensure that victims are able to shape – directly – future services. He held a conference in July 2014 to share the findings and to consult on his draft strategy. You can read the findings of the research HERE and the consultation report, which summarises the findings from the conference, HERE.
The research directly shaped the Commissioner’s Victims’ Strategy which sets out the Commissioner’s vision to support victims of crime and anti-social behaviour in Nottinghamshire to cope and recover from the harm they have experienced.
Following best practice in commissioning, the Commissioner kept his victims services under review. In 2015 he commissioned an Independent Review of victims’ support services. The review’s key findings were presented and the proposed new model introduced at a conference on 1 March 2016, enabling stakeholders to discuss with the Commissioner how they feel the model would work to best advantage.
