Responding to Victim Survivor Experiencing Criminalisation

The NIFVS team have developed a new webpage, Criminalised Victim Survivors, with resources to assist practitioners respond to victim survivors who have been criminalised. Victim survivors who have experienced criminalisation, may encounter discrimination in the family violence service system, which can impact on their risk and access to safety and support.

Recently, Flat Out and Safe & Equal developed a resource, Providing safety and support for criminalised victim survivors about what to take into consideration when supporting a criminalised victim survivor.

Flat Out launched the resource with a recorded panel discussion: Resisting Systemic Collusion with Criminalised Victim Survivors.
