Raising Your Game has launched a film for young people with a learning disability or communication difficulty who need to appear in court. ‘Getting ready for court’ shows how to prepare for court, who the main people in the courtroom are and what to do if you don’t understand something.
Using voices from the young people in Raising Your Game, this film gives young people aged 14-25 with a communication difficulty or learning disability an overview of the whole court process.
Before you go to court this film should help:
If there are long words you don’t understand
If you need to know who to ask for help
Find out all about your rights
The film was made with contributions and advice from young people who have been in the situation themselves as well as professionals working in the youth justice and crminal justice sector.
Would you like a copy of the film?
We would like this film to reach as many young people as possible; if you are an organisation that would find it useful to have the film available on your website, you can do so by embedding the code available on You Tube.
Please drop us an email to let us know if you are planning to do this so we can keep a record of where the film is being used. The film is also available as a DVD, if you would like a copy please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
