The Commission is prohibited from advocating on behalf of individual cases however we would like to hear from all victims and survivors who would like to share their experience and feedback with us. Victims are invited to share feedback via our ‘Have your say’ page as well as being invited to complete our Victim Survey. The Commission can also provide information about how to make a complaint about the criminal justice system (How to complain).
There are many organisations that provide support to victims of crime (Useful Organisations) and lots of information can be found on the organisations websites.
