Vesta Social Innovation Technologies


By combining the power of technology with clinical and legal expertise, Vesta is a multi-faceted and multi-disciplined platform that puts the survivor at the centre of the investigative and legal process. Giving survivors the ability to take control of how, when and where they tell their story and providing them with access to justice, will encourage more survivors to come forward and report. Authorities will receive a reliable record of events which will support and facilitate the investigative process, leading to higher arrest and conviction rates. All of which will help provide closure to the survivor, reduce mental stress and the aftermath of trauma.
