Witness Confident is the charity that is taking a stand against the walk-on-by culture and working toward a society that welcomes, values and supports eyewitnesses.
Our remit is how people engage with the criminal justice system in England & Wales, our work is to give eyewitnesses a voice and our goal is to reduce the levels of crime and fear in society.
Our thinking is:
Violent and serious crimes will go undeterred and undetected if the path of witnesses is not eased,
Confidence in the police will be low while they fail to engage with the public who witness crime,
Victims can only feel more isolated and fearful if those who witnessed the crime are not encouraged to help, and
Criminals will not respect a justice system that shows them more regard than it shows to those who witness their crimes.
