Getting involved with the Witness Service
To keep you safe during the coronavirus outbreak, we’re providing some of our services over the phone instead of face to face. To get support from the Witness Service, complete our referral form - someone from our team will be in touch.
If you’re going to court, read the guidance on how to keep safe on GOV.UK.
About the Witness Service
We provide free and independent support for both prosecution and defence witnesses in every criminal court in England and Wales.
Our trained volunteers provide practical information about the process, as well as emotional support to help witnesses feel more confident when giving evidence.
