Stepping in to listen and offer support

If a child or vulnerable adult has to be interviewed by the Police, sometimes their parents can’t be with them. The parent could be a witness, somehow involved in the case or unavailable for a whole range of reasons.

When this happens, an Appropriate Adult is needed to step in to listen and offer support as required.

The person in custody may have been involved in a whole variety of complex situations, but we will always be there when needed.
