What services are businesses entitled to under the Victims’ Code?

Share by emailShare by email

All businesses or enterprises (such as charities) that are victims of crime are entitled to:

  • receive services under the Code provided they give a named point of contact for all communication between the business and service provider; 
  • make an Impact Statement. This may be offered at the same time as a witness statement if appropriate, or by self-completion by post or by email; 
  • say whether the business would like to have relevant parts of the Impact Statement read aloud by a CPS Prosecutor before the defendant is sentenced. Whether all or part of the Impact Statement is read aloud is subject to the discretion of the Court.
