The Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) is assessing victim support services in the European Union

Published .

FRA is currently developing a project through which it will identify best practices on victim support, by mapping the services provided, and therefore equipping the EU and the Member States with updated information on what is currently available and how.

The European Commission asked FRA to undergo this study in order to have results before the 15th of November 2015, and therefore be useful for the transposition into national law of the Victims’ Directive (Directive 2012/29/EU).

The first results are now available in the form of comparative tables and maps and the final report will be launched later this year.

Initial findings stress the need for States to step up their efforts to provide support, underlining the importance of cooperating with civil society organizations.
