dc.description.abstract Crime has reduced considerably in England and Wales in recent decades. Nevertheless, it remains a significant social ill that has a negative impact on millions of people across England and Wales each year. In 2015/2016 an estimated seven million adults were a victim of at least one crime in England and Wales, which is about 15% of the adult population every year, or one in seven people. This estimation increases to one in five adults if fraud incidents are included. Victimization has a range of effects, including on victims’ physical health, employment or higher education prospects, finances and emotional wellbeing. Nevertheless, crime does not affect people in the same way; the extent of the impact on the victim is influenced by many factors and some evidence indicates that aspects of the crime and the seriousness of the incident do not solely account for this variation. Additional factors include the victim’s characteristics and financial circumstances and the support available…This report looks specifically at these issues–the impact of the crime and the victim’s needs. It includes a review of existing research, and presents findings from new quantitative and qualitative research with Victim Support (VS) service users. The aim is to identify the main effects of victimization and recognise victims’ expressed needs. It also highlights differences between crime types, where possible. (Author Text) en_US
