Survey launched for victims/survivors of crime

The Chief Victims Advisor, Dr Kim McGregor, wants to ensure that the needs of people who have experienced crime are at the heart of any reform of the criminal justice system.

Many victims/survivors have told us they feel let down by the current system and find it difficult to navigate.

The Strengthening the Criminal Justice System for Victims Survey(external link)(external link) is chance for victims/survivors to tell us their views, what works and what doesn’t, and how it can be improved.

Help us hear from as many victims/survivors as possible – please share the link to survey with your networks. Anyone who has experienced a crime or know someone who has, and people who work to support victims/survivors can take part.

Participation in the survey is anonymous – a summary of its findings will inform the Hāpaitia te Oranga Tangata – Safe and Effective Justice programme and our advice to Government.

The survey closes on Friday 1 March.
