Appropriate Adult Service 

We provide independent support for any vulnerable adult or young person who comes into contact with the Criminal Justice System. 

Our staff are fully trained and have over three years experience in providing appropriate adults for voluntary interviews or detained suspects.  

We exist to ensure that whilst a young person or vulnerable adult is in custody:

 

  • they are aware of their rights.

  • they have access to free and legal advice.

  • they understand the interview process.

  • they receive medical advice if required.

  • they have an adult present where needed.

 We are able to accept referrals for our appropriate adult  service 24 hours a day through our dedicated referral line.
