OBJECTIVES

To the surprise of everyone involved in the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme, the Government recently announced not only is it going to concede that the “same roof same family rule” is unfair and to reform the rule but also to have a full Review of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme.

This poses an opportunity for everyone concerned by the rights and interests of victims to consider what reforms to Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme should take place and to campaign for them as well as, more passively, to be in a position to comment on whatever proposals the Government makes itself.

“MA” and “JT” make it clear that the Scheme needs to be comprehensively Human Rights compliant. This means practitioners have a real chance of influencing change.

This is a once in a generation opportunity. All other Reviews of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme this and last century have been based on cutting the Schemes. We need to make sure that this time it is different.

Everyone interested in the rights of victims of crimes of violence is invited to a Roundtable Discussion.

The objective of the roundtable discussion will be to gather together views on desirable reforms as well as to set up a group to campaign for those reforms and to respond to the Government’s proposals whenever they become available.

DELEGATES

Open to ALL.

SPEAKERS

Kirsti Nelson of Legal Services Agency who acts for the petitioner in “MA” (The Supreme Court “same roof” rule case) will introduce the discussion with a note of her views on possible reforms and everybody else will have a similar opportunity.

Paul Brown of Legal Services Agency has agreed to act as noter upper, he will also describe the background including “JT” and will keep a record of the reform ideas suggested.
