Victims Views of SCRA's Victim information Service (research): SCRA’s Victim Information Service (VIS) was rolled out nationally between September 2009 and March 2010. The aim of the VIS is to provide victims with information on the outcome of the referral of the offence to the Children’s Reporter, and to provide information on the Children’s Hearings System. This evaluation assessed how well the VIS is operating from the perspectives of victims of youth offending. It was carried out between 1 November 2009 and 31 May 2010.
