Victims of crime

Jailing is failing the victims of crime. Victims of crime tell us that they are not helped by “tough on crime” rhetoric. Victims have frequently called for support and processes that recognise and give voice to their experience as victims, alongside programs that genuinely address the causes of offending and also ensure that people who have committed crime are held accountable for their actions. Restorative and Transformative Justice processes are examples of this kind of approach.
