This article explores the background to the creation of the Victims and Witnesses Action Group in Leicester. It lays out the aims of this group and how researchers sought to help meet them by carrying out research amongst the communities and agencies of Leicester. The findings highlighted gaps in service provision and led to calls for more multi‐agency working. This article goes on to set out proposals to tackling these gaps in provision through the idea of a federation. This brings together agencies working with victims and witnesses of crime, with a view to offering appropriate and accessible services within Leicester.
