I was delighted to welcome Baroness Newlove, the Victims’ Commissioner, to my office to hear from victims and those who support them.
It was a privilege to meet the victims who came in to tell us their stories and experiences. Most people know something of the policing aspects of my job, but not as much of the commissioning side, which puts victims at the centre of what we do. Through this work my team seeks to improve support available to victims through partnership working and grant funding. On Thursday many of my service provider partners were able to update me and brief the Victims’ Commissioner.
