Citizen’s Advice Witness Service

  • Anywhere
  • Posted 5 months ago

Giving evidence as a witness can be daunting and the court process can be complicated and difficult to understand. The Citizens Advice Witness Service provides free and independent support for both prosecution and defence witnesses giving evidence in a criminal court in England and Wales.

Our trained volunteers provide practical information about the court process as well as emotional support to help witnesses feel more confident when giving evidence.

We can show witnesses around before the day of the trial so they know where to go and who they’re likely to see. We offer some witnesses more in-depth support outside of court, which can take place in their home, work, school or community centre.

We find the best support to address the individual needs of each witness.

We want witnesses to leave feeling respected and fairly treated by us, having given their best evidence.
