About Court Network


Court Network provides personal support, non-legal information and referral to those in contact with the justice system.

 

 


 

 

Our Vision

 

To provide the community with volunteers who stand beside, empower and instil confidence in all court users.

 

 

Our Mission

 

To provide support, information and referral to persons attending court and to advocate for the needs of all court users.

 

 


 

 

Court Network recognises that there are significant barriers to accessing the justice system including:

 

  • lack of comprehensive, understandable information
  • lack of comprehensive services which recognise the diversity of court users
  • the culture and language of the court environment
  • the financial and emotional cost of justice
