Welcome to Court Network


Court Network was established in 1980, in the Melbourne suburb of Prahran in a small court when Carmel Benjamin AM saw a gap in the justice system for a service providing support, information and referral.  The service has grown significantly since with volunteers in almost every court in Victoria.  In 2006 the service expanded to Queensland in the Brisbane CBD courts and in 2010 to Cairns and Townsville. 

 

Court Network is a unique court support service operating throughout Victoria and Queensland.  We are the only court based service explicitly and solely concerned with the needs of court users.  Information, support and referral services are provided by over 400 trained volunteers supporting:  

 

  • Victims of crime
  • People accused of crime
  • Families, adults and children who attend court and require support
  • Adults and children who have been violated or exploited by crime
  • Litigants who have little or no support
 
Court Network has volunteers in the following courts:
