Description of event
The Scottish Government Victims and Witnesses team held an online Teams workshop to gather stakeholders together to look in detail at chapter 1 of the improving victims' experiences of the justice system consultation on proposals for a Victims' Commissioner for Scotland.
The purpose of the event was to promote the consultation and to seek views on the day from attendees. The event was also intended to help attendees complete the consultation document (open until 5 August 2022, and later extended to 19 August 2022).
The event was held on 14 July 2022 from 10:00 – 13:00 on Microsoft Teams. Attendees signed up for the event via Eventbrite.
Roughly 60-70 attendees from across the justice sector were invited to attend. This included victim support organisations, people with lived experience of crime, COSLA, and the Law Society of Scotland. Over 40 individuals attended on the day.
The event was chaired by Zak Tuck (Victims and Witnesses team) and additional colleagues from across Scottish Government provided facilitating and scribing support throughout. The event consisted of plenary sessions and breakout rooms to consider the questions in the Victims' Commissioner chapter in the consultation.
