HOMETRUTHS has been invited to be a member of the Wiltshire & Swindon Victim Forum. 

We attended yesterday's meeting and heard about the Wiltshire Police & Crime Commisioner's Police & Crime Plan updates for 2017 onwards.

We gave an update about our service and projects and heard from the other attendees including: Wiltshire Victim Support, Citizens Advice Witness Service, Probation services, Wiltshire Mind, Swindon and Wiltshire Trading Standards and Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust.

We were able to contribute to the workshop sessions looking at improving the experiences of victims and witnesses in the Criminal Justice System.

HOMETRUTHS supports victims and survivors of domestic abuse who use the criminal justice system and also those who for whatever reasons don't or can't report what they are experiencing or have experienced.  Domestic abuse became a crime in England and Wales at the end of last year which means victims of domestic abuse who are expereincing emotional and psychological abuse can report to the Police.

We facilitate a Survivors' Forum that helps inform our services and also engages with partner agencies and aims to improve the systems for other survivors of domestic abuse.
