Court Support

Court Support

Court Support provides assistance to people attending court proceedings at three of Sydney main courts – Liverpool Court, Darlinghurst Court and the Downing Centre Local and District Court in central Sydney.

Court Support is a community-based service operated by Open Support’s friendly and helpful volunteers, who offer a welcoming and caring presence at three of Sydney’s busiest local courts.

Court Support volunteers are able to liaise with and/or direct court attendees to appropriate court officials, police and legal aid representatives should court attendees need. The service also offers light refreshments, including tea and coffee, to all members of the community who are involved in the court system at Liverpool, Darlinghurst and the Downing Centre courts.

Court Support serves people of all ages and cultural backgrounds who need to attend any of the various Sydney metropolitan courts where the service operates. This includes anyone who is attending court for a trial, a hearing or any other matter, as well as their families, friends, colleagues and, potentially, legal team members.
