Our Witness Service
If you are attending court as a witness to a crime, volunteers from Victim Support Scotland’s witness service will be available to help you on the day.
We can offer you a court familiarisation visit, providing you with the opportunity to visit the court house in advance of the trial date and view a court when it’s not being used. Some witnesses find that familiarisation with the court reduces some of the stress and anxiety on the day of the trial. During this visit we can discuss any additional needs or any concerns you have. We can explain what is expected from a witness, the possible sequence of events and offer reassurance about anything that may be troubling you, such as your personal safety.
