Revising the Victims’ Code – consultation response

The RJC recently submitted a consultation response to the Ministry of Justice welcoming revised proposals to the Victims’ Code. The code of practice for victims of crime establishes minimum standards for their rights, support and protection.

The RJC would like all victims of crime to have access to restorative justice and are pleased to see common barriers to access – from information sharing to type of offence - addressed in these revisions.
