Victim Support Europe and Victim and Witness Support Service Croatia are delighted to welcome you to the Victim Support Europe 2024 Annual Conference – ‘The Bridge Over Troubled Water: Celebrating and Strengthening Victim Support’.

VSE Annual Conference 2024 will take place in Zagreb from 22 – 23 May 2024. It will be a hybrid conference, and we hope to welcome victim support community and affiliated professionals from around the world both on-site, at the Hotel Antunovic Zagreb, and digitally.

The 2024 edition, aptly titled “The Bridge Over Troubled Water”, builds upon the foundation laid by its predecessors, aspiring to create a collaborative space where stakeholders from diverse sectors converge to celebrate achievements, address challenges, and forge pathways for a more resilient and victim-centred future.

By aligning with the National Framework for Comprehensive Victim Support, the conference aims to contribute significantly to the enhancement of victim support services, recognizing their profound impact on both individuals and society as a whole.

Acknowledging that victim support is as essential as healthcare, the conference emphasises the critical role it plays in fostering well-being and societal resilience. It underscores that the National Framework for Victim Support serves as a foundational cornerstone, providing the necessary structure and collaboration required to make victim support systems functioning effectively.

Real-time interpretation services will be provided for both Croatian to English and English to Croatian during the main conference programme.
