Stakeholders

We have clearly established partnerships with the Justice Department at the Scottish Government and Victims Support Scotland, Police Scotland, North Lanarkshire Council and South Lanarkshire Council Social Work Departments and with statutory and voluntary organisations to identify roles, responsibilities and ways in which our services impact on national policy and the longer term sustainability of Petal.

  • Witness Service at High Courts
  • Social Work Resource Departments: North and South Lanarkshire Councils.

We contribute to debate and take part in consultations, which include issues such as preventing secondary victimisation (damage resulting from insensitive handling of a criminal case). The purpose is to improve the provision of information, recognition, consideration and support during the criminal justice process to families in homicide cases.

Petal Support is part of The Victims Forum and the Lanarkshire Community Justice Authority with the remit to reduce re-offending.  The emphasis is to reduce re-offending through information sharing, co-operation and effective joint working.  The membership of the group represents statutory agencies who deal with offenders and also victims.  The members co-ordinate inter- agency work, identify gaps in support to families, recommend improvements and new service delivery. Petal represents the views of victim organisations; raise the awareness of the effect offenders actions have on victims and their families.
