The scheme is delivered by more than 50 trained volunteers who give freely of their time to help people navigate the court system. For those facing the stress of their first court appearance, multiple adjournments or having a family member in custody, being assisted in a friendly manner can make a real difference. CRC volunteers provide information on court protocol, sources of legal assistance, emotional support and referrals to other services. Volunteers do not offer legal advice and there is no referral or fee required for its service.
