Courts and the trial process are unfamiliar to many people. Having to attend court to give evidence can be an intimidating prospect, and is understandably more difficult and potentially traumatic for a victim of crime.
Having to recount the circumstances of your victimisation in court, sometimes months after the incident, can be very difficult and distressing. There are also many processes, leading up to and after the trial, that victims need to understand in order to make going to court as easy as possible.
This section of the website provides information about the courts, the trial process and outcomes and important advice about services available to help victims when they have to attend court.
