2015 EiDA Nominee – Victim Support

Victim Support is the independent charity for victims and witnesses of crime in England and Wales. They were set up 40 years ago and have grown to become the oldest and largest victims’ organisation in the world, taking pride in being a diverse organisation enriched by the participation of all individuals and communities. Their services are free and available to everyone, whether or not the crime has been reported and regardless of when it happened. To achieve this, Victim Support ensure non-discriminatory practices are in effect in both employment and service delivery. Their policy is to ensure that no victim, witness, employee, volunteer, trustee, or job applicant receives less favourable treatment. Selection criteria and procedures are regularly reviewed to make sure that individuals are selected on the basis of their relevant merits and abilities. Victim Support’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee is dedicated to a programme of action to make this policy effective and bring it to the attention of all employees.
