Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Paddy Tipping will be addressing support workers as part of an event aimed at enhancing community services for victims of crime.
The event, which takes place at Mansfield Civic Hall, will be held on Thursday 6 December. Organised by Nottinghamshire Victim Care, the victim support services commissioned by the PCC, the aim is to bring together community organisations across the county who have signed up to work in partnership with the service as part of its Community Point programme.
The aim of the programme is to increase access to support for victims of crime in the community who struggle to find help elsewhere and is part of a new-look victim care model commissioned by the PCC.
The event will include presentations on restorative justice, youth violence intervention and support for the homeless.
Mr Tipping said: “I want to develop the best possible services for victims of crime in Nottinghamshire so survivors always have a route to turn to for help. Recovering from crime is a complex process and it is clear we need to ensure the right help is available where and when it is needed to maximise recovery.
“Victims of crime remain my priority and I will continue to invest in improvements to the services we provide. We all have a part to play in raising the bar of victim care and this event will bring together the expertise of those at the forefront of victim care to make it happen.”
