National Victims of Crime Awareness Week is April 10-16th, and Kootenay Co-op Radio has teamed up with a regional social service agency and the Castlegar Violence Against Women in Relationships Committee to help raise awareness about Victims of Crime. This pilot project between our community radio sector and social service agencies will help to build mutually beneficial partnerships.

Provided below are 6 public service announcements,  30 seonds long bringing awareness to the diversity of Victims’ voices. Please right click on the links below in red and “save as” to download each of the 6 PSAs. If you are interested in adding recognition of your local social services agency, you may record an added line at the end of the PSA.

Kootenay Co-Op Radio has also produced a 1 hour radio show which includes interviews with victims and support workers, highlighting the support a victim can receive and the steps involved from victimization to survival and recovery. The fully produced radio show is available to download here:
