New content available: Children's access to courts project video - 26th Mar 2019

The Greater Manchester Local Family Justice Board have developed a children's access to court project, to enable children involved in public law proceedings to come to court, see a pretend hearing, and ask questions. 

In this short film the Judge, court staff and lawyers explain the development of this innovative project and the virtual reality version of it. 

Thank you to the University of Salford for funding and creating the virtual reality version. 

You can find full details and a link to the video in our Reports section here
