The main goal of the AREV project is to enhance the rights of Estonian victims by improving the protection and support processes of victims of crime in the country. To achieve this goal, VSE works closely with the Estonian Ministry of Justice, the Police and Guard Board, the Social Insurance Board, the healthcare sector, and other key stakeholders to develop, deliver and test tools for information provision, individual needs assessment and referral of victims.
AREV will be piloted in the Ida Virumaa and Lääne Virumaa region, in North-East Estonia. It is the hope of Victim Support Europe that AREV project will produce results that will make it a model of a good practice in the development of victim-centric justice to be used in other EU member states and beyond.
Project stakeholders in the pilot region: East Prefecture, Viru District Prosecutor’s Office, Social Insurance Board Victim Support (East region), Rakvere Hospital, Narva Hosptal, Ida-Viru Central Hospital, Viru County Court.
