Victims of Violence
By Joan Jonker
Having become increasingly concerned about the rise in crime and the softly-softly approach to punishing offenders, Joan Jonker realised that little was being done for the victims of crime. She set up the charity Victims of Violence and went on to raise over two million pounds and to help twelve thousand victims whose voices would not otherwise have been heard. Victims of Violence is the moving, no-holds-barred story of Joan Jonker's fight for justice. Of the heartbreak and suffering behind the crime statistics and of Joan's courage and compassion in the face of adversity.
