Court Support

Speaking of matters judicial, this is one of the volunteering activities I have long meant to get around to doing — court support. Here’s the first lot of info I found on Google:

‘Mission Australia Court Support Service – Greater Sydney. Every day across the greater Sydney area many victims of crime are attending court without the information and support they are entitled to under the NSW Charter of Victims Rights.

Going to court can be a confusing and stressful experience – many even find it frightening. For some victims, being at court may mean facing someone who has hurt or abused them. Giving evidence can often mean reliving a traumatic experience. Mission Australia Court Support Service aims to help minimise the potential negative effects for victims attending court. To register for this position, please email volunteering@missionaustralia.com.au providing your name, daytime phone number, mobile phone number, email address and postcode.’

Obviously need to do some more research on this one, and FINISH MY BLOODY PHD FIRST, but reckon will do it eventually.
