Chapter 3 of the Victims and Witnesses Manual

We are publishing this Chapter because we want older people, their families, communities and the general public to have confidence that we understand the serious nature of crimes against older people.

And also the impact that being a witness to a crime can have on older people, including the impact of being a victim or witness and requiring to attend Court.
