- We are
set up to provide a Multi-Faith Chaplaincy service to all court users
(including people of faith or with no faith) irrespective of race,
culture, creed, special needs or sexual orientation.
part-time Chaplains are now training 20 volunteers from the various
faith and secular groups. The Volunteers will take up station in January
service is for all who use the building (between 850 - 1150 per day)
and includes: defendants, victims, witnesses, families & supporters,
prosecutors, advocates, Legal Advisers, Ushers, court admin &
Magistrates deal with approx 32,000 criminal cases p.a. and a significant
number of defendants are not represented
is also a Coroner's Court on site. HM Coroner deal with approximately
5,000 deaths each year which cannot certified by a Doctor. Approximately
500 require a full inquest
- We believe
the service will benefit individual court users and the whole community.
