Overview

What we do

The Victim Awareness Course is a short rehabilitative course for individuals who have committed low level offences such as theft, criminal damage, public order and minor assault.

The VAC is designed to contribute to a reduction in reoffending by improving attitudes and thinking towards crime. The VAC aims to increase victim empathy by placing the voice of the victim at the heart of the course.

The course covers values around crime, gains and consequences of crime, the impact of crime on victims, responsibility and choice. It helps people understand the impact of their behaviour and allows them to identify alternative choices they can make in the future.
