9.5 How Support Through Court works with vulnerable Individuals

Support Through Court doesn’t see vulnerability as a bar to participation but rather as requiring additional support to achieve the best possible participation. We don’t make assumptions about what the client needs. We also don’t regard domestic abuse in isolation but as an intrinsic part of the support required by the client.

At Support Through Court we take a Trauma Informed Approach to working with all of our clients, but especially with vulnerable people. This involves working with clients in a way which focuses on giving them kindness, belief and autonomy.
