I will be visiting the North West of England and meeting the new Lancashire Restorative Justice Manager to find out in more detail how they support victims and ensure that the service is accessible to all victims of crime in Lancashire.

Friday 13th October

The amazing Rosalyn Boyce will be joining me in Manchester as we present to Greater Manchester Police Senior Investigating Officers about Restorative Justice and how it can support victims of serious and complex cases

Monday 16th & 30th October

Why me? is a national organisation seeking to influence and inform national institutions in their support and commissioning of services for victims. On the 16th I will be attending my first Advisory group meeting with the Victims’ Commissioner, Baroness Newlove. On 30th October I will be attending the Victims’ Group at the Parole Board. In both meetings it will be great opportunity to share practical and research knowledge about what works in supporting victims of crime and for our Victim Ambassadors to share personal experience with services and statutory agencies.
