The Listening Service (Edinburgh Sheriff Court)

The Listening Service complements the work of the Edinburgh Sheriff Court Services. We offer a non-judgemental, confidential listening ear to any Court user so that they feel less isolated and better supported in what can be a difficult, stressful and confusing situation.


Current opportunity

Volunteers required to offer companionship and a non judgmental listening ear on a 1 to 1 basis, while maintaining client confidentiality. Help clients find their way around the court system and identify locations within the building. Work as part of a team and participate in court related activities, training, support and supervision and promotion of the Listening Service.
