Rape Crisis Scotland are currently doing some lobbying about improving the experience for survivors of sexual violence in the court system. Currently many have survivors, who are seen as witnesses and do not have any legal representation, have their mental health, homelessness, involvement in prostitution, sexual history and medical records etc brought up and scrutinised in court. This is done often without challenge and survivors can often feel they are the ones being tried rather than the accused. In order to gather evidence on the need for change they are looking to gather feedback directly from survivors about their experience in court. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/QKPLHZV
