An independent voice

The Victims’ Commissioner is appointed by ministers but is independent of government and free to advise, challenge and offer her own views.

I speak only for victims. My task is to hold the Government to account, however uncomfortable that might be for whoever is Justice Secretary or PM.” - VICTIMS’ COMMISSIONER, BARONESS NEWLOVE
