VS response on importance of reporting options for victims

3 February 2016

Victim Support responds to BBC Look North on the importance of reporting options for victims.

Lesley McLean, manager for independent charity Victim Support in South and West Yorkshire, said:

“As a charity that supports hundreds of thousands of victims each year, we know how difficult it can be for a victim to decide to come forward and report a crime.

“So it’s crucial that, having made the decision, victims have easy and accessible options for reporting the crime and beginning the process of seeking the help they need and the justice they deserve.”
