Victim Support NI is a
voluntary organisation which helps people affected by crime. We are recruiting
for three SOLA’s as a part of a pilot scheme funded by the Department of Justice and stemming from the
Gillen Review to provide publicly funded independent legal advice and advocacy to
complainants in serious sexual offence cases.
The Gillen Review noted that a
recurring criticism heard from complainants is that they often feel that they themselves
are placed on trial as well as the accused. The Gillen Review concluded that a
measure of publicly funded independent legal representation should be offered
to complainants from the outset up to, but not including, the trial.
