star this property answer text <p>In England and Wales, the Code of Practice for Victims of Crime (Victims’ Code) outlines the services victims are entitled to receive, including updates on the progress of their case during an investigation or prosecution. Bereaved families in homicide cases and victims of the most serious offences will receive information within 1 working day of key developments, such as when a suspect is arrested or released without charge. Victims will also be informed how often they will receive updates on the status of the case following discussion with the police.</p><p> </p><p>In the first cross-government Victims Strategy, published in September 2018, the Government committed to amend the Victims’ Code and we intend to consult on the changes shortly. We also committed in the strategy to hold agencies to account for compliance with the Victims’ Code through improved reporting, monitoring and transparency on whether victims are receiving entitlements.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In criminal courts, victims of crime that have been called as a witness are entitled to enter a court through a different entrance from the suspect and to sit in a separate waiting area. Other witnesses may also seek special measures to use a separate entrance and waiting area. In family courts, vulnerable parties and witnesses may also request the use of a separate entrance and waiting area. Where dedicated separate entrances or waiting areas are not available, court staff will make alternative arrangements wherever possible.</p><p> </p><p>As detailed in the Victims Strategy, improving the court environment for victims is a key commitment.</p><p> </p> more like this
