VSU Helps Profile 3: Court Support
What can VSU Advocates do with Court Support files?
The Court Support Worker will assist RCMP and the Crown’s Office with victims/witnesses who must testify in Court. Our Court Support Worker is trained in providing court preparation to victim/witnesses & can also provide court accompaniment (for support) to Provincial Court and Court of Queen’s Bench. The Court Support Worker will also work with the Crown’s Office in making requests for special provisions in court on behalf of the victim – such as a screen for a child witness or a court dog. Our Court Support Worker DOES NOT discuss the victim’s statement or evidence when preparing an individuals to testify in court.
