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 the opportunity to visit the court 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 the expectations of a witness, the possible sequence of events and offer reassurance about anything that may be troubling you, such as your personal safety.

To contact the witness service in the court you have been cited to attend, please visit our Witness Service Locations page.
