Have your say

VICTIMS of crime in the area are urged to take part in a survey to highlight issues facing victims and witnesses.

Victim Support is running focus groups and interviews with people in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

Mark Asthorpe, victims’ services advocate for the area, is seeking witnesses of anti-social behaviour, domestic abuse, sexual assault and hate crime to take part.

Victims must have experienced the crime within the past two years and not currently be involved in a court case relating to the crime.
