  • Would you like to be part of a nationally recognised service for young witnesses?
  • Are you interested in volunteering to support and give advice to children who have to give evidence at Court?
  • Could you liaise and work with agencies within the Criminal Justice System on behalf of young witnesses?

If you are interested in becoming a Young Witness Service volunteer for the service, full training will be provided.  Your role will be to support and familiarise child / young witnesses with the criminal justice process, including different levels of court. You will attend one to one visits with the child, arrange court visits and accompany the child to court on the day of trial.
