promoting justice for crime victims and survivors
Welcome and thank you for visiting my website!
This website exists to assist people affected by violent crime and those working with them. It highlights important matters and tries to point people in the right direction. This site promotes my freelance work for crime victims and service providers. My handbook is a guide to all that is best in the field of personal, legal, community and political matters I have come across so far.

Invitations of work are welcomed about crime victim related issues from national or regional strategy and policy, my special interest in developing multi-agency partnerships with police and other statutory services like health and social care services.
Invitations are welcomed for statutory whole service safeguarding investigations and reviews, review of health and social care operational performance, mental health Ministry of Justice tribunal reports and high court forensic reports.
Invitations and enquiries are also welcomed for all media-related contributions from radio chat shows, television contributions to researched feature articles for print.
Successive government cuts in state compensation, constraints in access to quality law firms and substantial cuts in welfare provision make the daily crises of crime victims compounded by inadequate state intervention.
Promoting justice has remained the necessity to develop improved procedures for early multi-disciplinary referrals. These require early statutory intervention from health and social care services in conjunction with the police service.
The repeal of the draconian Criminal Injuries Compensation Act 1995 should be advocated by media, crime victim organizations and all political parties and the Victims’ Advisory Panel. The demand for change to protect crime victims!
surviving violent crime
The dismantling and massive reduction in welfare support and criminal compensation provision makes my handbook even more relevant.
My handbook was written because at the time nothing existed that comprehensively tried to practically assist innocent victims of violent crime and because no British crime victim organization had produced anything. The public and service providers say my handbook makes a successful contribution in various ways, which is my goal! People require the very best quality in services and guidance and my handbook treats crime victims with intelligence and professional experience in public service.
