Our Advocacy Support Project can provide support and information at every stage of the criminal justice system, from just thinking about reporting through to the resolution of a court case.

We will listen first and provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions. We don’t pressure anyone to report, we are on your side and we stand by your choices. We can arrange appointments to meet you in person or remotely, by phone, text, video call or email.

As well as providing information we can provide practical support such as attending criminal justice related meetings and appointments with you, getting updates on your case, attending court with you and communicating with services on your behalf if you wish us to.

Our advocacy workers can support you with all stages of the criminal justice system, including:

  • Attending police statements
  • Attending forensic medical examinations
  • Attending identification parades (VIPER)
  • Help with updates from the police and courts
  • Support at Court
  • Help with special measures
  • Help with completing victim impact statements
  • Helping with complaints related to sexual violence cases about any part of the criminal justice system
  • Post-court support
  • Exploring other options such as non-harassment orders or other civil remedies

If you decide not to go ahead with reporting we will still be here for you.
