‘Getting ready for court’ – a new film launched by Raising Your Game

A new film about preparing for court, aimed at young people with a learning disability or communication difficulty has been launched by Raising Your Game.

Supported by the Big Lottery Fund, Raising Your Game is a five-year project run by Mencap in partnership with I CAN and Nacro helping  young people aged 14-25 with a learning disability or communication difficulty who are at risk of offending.

‘Getting ready for court’ includes information about preparing for court, explains court procedures and describes who is involved before and during a court appearance

The film was made with contributions and advice from young people who have been to court as well as professionals working in the youth justice and criminal justice sector.

The film can be viewed at http://raisingyourgame.mencap.org.uk/getting-ready-for-court-film along with details of how organisations can embed it on their own websites.

It is also available as a DVD which can be ordered for free by emailing raisingyourgame@mencap.org.uk
