Provides free emotional support and practical preparation for children under 18 years of age who are to give evidence to a court. The children involved can be victims or witnesses to any criminal charge, in any court. This includes the Magistrates Court, Children’s Court, District Court or Supreme Court. The court process can add to the stress of a child victim. However, ensuring they are adequately prepared as a witness can reduce their emotional stress and enable them to better participate in court proceedings.
