The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) is seeking the views of victims of crime to help inform their future commissioning of support services.
The OPCC is working with a research company, Perpetuity Research, who are carrying out this victim needs assessment on their behalf.
The main aims of the victim needs assessment are as follows:
• To assess the emotional and practical support needs of victims
• To assess the differing needs of Thames Valley’s diverse communities
• To assess how services might help design-out inequalities in access
Interested in sharing your thoughts?
If you have been a victim of crime and want to share your views you can do so by completing an online survey or taking part in a phone interview.
You will be asked your views on a range of issues including:
• Perspectives on current service provisions
• Gaps in the services
• Any suggestions you have to improve victim services in Thames Valley.
To take part in the online survey please visit:
Alternatively interviews, lasting approximately 20 minutes, can be conducted over the phone. Please contact Caitlyn McGeer on the email below to schedule an interview:
Participants will be entered into a draw to win £50 in shopping vouchers.
The information you give is confidential, anonymous and will only be used for the purposes of this piece of research. Perpetuity will write a report, incorporating your views (anonymously) to highlight to the OPCC how improvements can be made to the support services available for victims of crime in the Thames Valley.
