Court Network’s role is to empower and increase the confidence of court users to manage the requirements of the courts.

Court Network volunteers can:

  • Provide support and information about going to court
  • Attend court with a court user during their appearance
  • Explain how the courts and legal systems operate
  • Show a court user around court beforehand, so they can become familiar with where they have to go on the day of their court case
  • Provide a safe place at court for the court user
  • Refer to other community services.

Court Network can also provide non-legal information, support and referral over the phone: Ph: 1800 571 239.
