National Advocacy Project
We know how difficult it can be to report what’s happened.
Whether or not to take that step is a big decision, but it’s not one you have rush into, and you are not alone.
If you want to find out what reporting would involve and talk it through, we are here for you to help with that.
In the four years since our National Advocacy Project was set up, specialist Advocacy Workers across Scotland have helped thousands of people to access justice.
Advocacy workers can provide support and information at every stage of the Criminal Justice System, from before a statement is made through to the resolution of a court case.
They can help to get updates regarding the progress of a case, provide information about special measures, and attend court with survivors.
They can also provide emotional support throughout the process and after court is finished.
You can read an evaluation report about the National Advocacy Project here.
