How you might feel

Going to court may make you feel nervous. Most witnesses feel the same about going to court, even adults.

Being in a strange place and being asked questions can be hard. You may feel upset if you know or are scared of the accused person (defendant). This might be because they hurt you or someone you know.

If you are nervous, take deep, slow breaths. It’s OK to hold a small, favourite object in your hand while giving your evidence.
