Princess Anne visited the national office of Victim Support Scotland in Glasgow.

The Princess Royal is the president of the support body, and during her visit, she met with volunteers and staff to find out more about the work they do. She toured the new office and had a look at the remote suites used for communicating with courts all over the country.

Chief Executive Kate Wallace told the Glasgow Times, “We provide emotional and practical support to victims of any type of crime in Scotland. It doesn’t matter what the crime is, and it can be a recent crime, or it can be something that happened quite some time ago, it doesn’t matter. Anything from assault, anti-social behaviour through to sexual crime, and we support families bereaved by murder and culpable homicide. And that really means working with victims to try and improve whatever areas of their life they need help with.”

She added that it was an honour to welcome the Princess Royal.
