Advocate's Gateway launched
29 April 2013
A new service to give free access to practical, evidence-based guidance on vulnerable witnesses and defendants has been launched by the Advocacy Training Council.
The Advocate's Gateway provides eight toolkits that set out the common problems for advocates when examining vulnerable witnesses and defendants, as well as suggested solutions and best practice guidance.
The Nuffield Foundation funded the development of three of the eight toolkit as part of our work to improve the treatment of child witnesses in courts.
The Advocate’s Gateway is hosted by the Advocacy Training Council and is managed by the ATC’s Vulnerable Witness Management Committee.
