Children and the court system - Witnesses

Mrs Cooper, Designated Safeguarding Lead -

Children are sometimes required to give evidence in criminal courts, either for crimes
committed against them or for crimes they have witnessed. The guides explain each step of the process, support and special measures that are available. There are diagrams illustrating the courtroom structure and the use of video links is explained.

Please see below the Going to Court booklet for young witnesses (12–17 years)
