Victim Support Malta
Victim Support Malta works to support victims of crime and ensure they are protected against multiple, and secondary, victimisation. It provides information to potential victims about their rights and duties; and advocates for a system fully conscious of its obligations towards all victims of crime. The creation of the organization responded to the need to assist disoriented individuals who experienced direct contact with the criminal justice system. Victims of crime felt that the system related to them in a thoroughly impersonal manner leaving them totally on their own to cope as best they could with their distress.
Victim Support Malta is a member of Victim Support Europe (VSE), which is a network of non- governmental victim support organisations, and The World Society of Victimology (WSV), which is an international non-profit organisation that advances research, services, and awareness for victims.
