Let's Go to Court

Children of all ages are called to testify in court. If children are well supported through the process, their experience is likely to be less stressful and more positive for them if they receive age-appropriate information, preparation and support from a professional service provider.

Let's Go to Court answers questions and concerns that the child may have about their participation as a witness. Their understandable fears about testifying in a strange and stressful environment are reduced and their ability as a witness is greatly enhanced by court preparation and support.

Victim Service Workers, Crown lawyers and other professionals have an important contribution to make to this process and are encouraged to use this video to support children in doing so.
