Aims and objectives

The major objectives of the Project are twofold: to ensure that victims of crime in Lithuania, Romania, Italy and Portugal have access to and are offered tailored victim support services suited to their needs and that the results of the Project will be available and transferrable to situations across Europe. 

The Project will achieve its objectives through four core aims: 

a) developing an individual assessment process to determine the support needs of victims; 

b) strengthening partnerships between support organisations and between those organisations and the police; 

c) developing referral mechanisms, founded on secure communication channels, which can be used between support organisations and/or between the police and those organisations; 

d) establishing an information package for victims on their rights, the impact of victimisation and on the victim services which exist in the States of the partner organisations.
