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.

This incudes: signposting to different court locations, helping people find their way around the court system and importantly, providing a listening ear on a non-judgemental, confidential basis.
