The Citizens Advice Witness Service provides practical help, emotional support and information to witnesses so that they feel valued, respected and informed and able to give their best evidence in court. We are based in the Magistrates and Crown Court of Chester and require volunteers in both locations.
Our trained volunteers offer emotional support and practical help and to witnesses before and on the day of the trial, so that they feel valued, respected and informed and able to give their best evidence in court. Our service is free and confidential.
Please note that we operate a competitive recruitment process and not everyone is successful. In view of the requirements and delays in being able to set up new volunteers we are unable to appoint anyone on a placement or for short-term or occasional volunteering.
