Accompanying witnesses is done by specially trained persons and honorary persons experienced in court affairs or social pedagogical persons. Especially in case of sexual or intense depicts with violence it is helpful for the victims/witnesses to have a contact person as early as possible during the lawsuit. In civil/family related lawsuit including violence issues accompanying to court can be done.
If needed a comprehensive psycho social supervision during lawsuits can be offered. The witnesses are supported by arrangements with lawyers and court to maintain their rights.
Accompanying witnesses works as the interim between justiciary and pedagogy, supports a regional networking between police, judiciary, youth offices and other psycho social special services and works as an advocate for the interests of victims and witnesses.
