Closes 19 Aug 2022

Contents

It is recognised that not all consultees will wish or feel able to answer all of the questions. Consultees are encouraged to answer questions where they feel it appropriate to do so. 

We recognise that your personal experience may have contributed to shaping your views, including as a victim of crime, a family member or friend of a victim of crime or through serving on a jury. If you have been affected by any of the issues discussed in this consultation, information, advice and assistance can be provided by Victim Support Scotland and other organisations that provide general and specialist support.

The links below correspond to the sections within the consultation. You may complete some or all of the sections. By clicking a link it will take you to the questions within the section. Once you have completed the relevant questions on the page you can select 'Save and come back later...' or 'Continue'. '

Save and return' later feature allows you to return to the consultation at a later date without losing the information you've already entered as part of your response. If the response has not been submitted prior to the consultation closing the response will be lost.

'Continue' will return you to this page. You can opt to complete another section or complete the required 'About you' page. Once the required questions have been completed you may submit your response.

Definitions of some of the legal and technical terms that are used in the consultation can be found in this glossary.
