David Jamieson, the Police and Crime Commissioner, would like to invite you to the 2020 Victims Summit on the 27th of February 2020, 9.30 am to 3.30 pm at Aston Villa Football Club, Villa Park, Birmingham B6 6HE.
The Summit will bring together services he has commissioned, regionally and locally, as a result of recommendations made by the Victims Commission. The Commission has played an integral role, assisting him to shape delivery for victims of crime across the region and over the past 5 years he has commissioned some new and innovative projects to support victims in ways which are meaningful to them.
The Summit will address ‘Online Abuse and Technological Victimisation’ which will be the theme of the summit.
The morning will address challenges of online abuse and tech victimisation from the perspective of survivors/victims, an academic from BCU and providers funded to support victims through the PCC’s Office. The Victims’ Commissioner, Vera Baird, will also give an overview of the work being undertaken by her office in 2020.
The afternoon slot will address remedies and support available for victims from the point of view of NSPCC, Refuge’s specialist Tech Abuse Service and a panel made up of all the speakers.
