The Witness Service provides practical and emotional support and information to witnesses so that they feel valued, respected and informed and able to give their best evidence in court.
The role is court based and will involve Witness Service Court Volunteers aged 18+ providing support to witnesses, and their supporters, by explaining the court procedures and legal terminology, showing them around the courtroom before trial and sitting in the courtroom with them, when permitted.
Full training is provided and travel expenses are reimbursed.
A suggested weekly time commitment is 8 hours, negotiable with the organisation.
An informal discussion, references and a disclosure and barring check will be required.
