Visit Victim Care Merseyside

Our Victims Needs Assessment (VNA) was designed to review the existing services offered to victims and improve the services on offer to help people cope and recover after a crime.

The VNA was first  carried out in 2014 to inform the creation of the Victim Care Merseyside service.

 At the centre of this process were the views of victims and survivors, with surveys and focus groups being held to gather their opinions. The views of service providers were also gathered through a series of workshops.

This process was repeated in 2017 to ensure we were still commissioning the services most needed by victims.

Jane wants your views on policing funding today...

The Police Commissioner has to set the police budget soon.

She wants your views on  if you would be willing to contribute an extra 19p a week in your council tax  to enable the Chief Constable to recruit 160 new police officers next year, as well help balance the budget and protect jobs?

Without the extra funding the Commissioner will have to reduce the budget, the recruitment of new officers can’t
go ahead and the Chief Constable will be required to cut back on the service again.
