Dr Baroness Helen Newlove
Baroness Newlove of Warrington became our patron in June 2019.
The former Victims' Commissioner for England and Wales has been championing the plight of victims of crime for more than a decade.
A powerful, influential and inspirational speaker, she came to national attention in 2007 when her husband, father-of-three Garry Newlove, was tragically murdered by a gang of drunk youths in front of his family.
Since Garry’s death, Lady Newlove has devoted her life to campaigning for victims’ rights. She set up several foundations to help tackle the UK drinking culture as well as providing support to young people.
She was given a peerage in 2010 before being named Victims’ Commissioner two years later. She is now a deputy speaker in the House of Lords.
In her final report as Victims’ Commissioner in April, called Anti-Social Behaviour: Living a Nightmare, Baroness Newlove accused authorities in England and Wales of ignoring the impact of antisocial behaviour on victims.
