Help from court settings

We are based within four magistrates’ courts in Truro, Bodmin, Plymouth and Newton Abbot. We give advice and support from court settings without judgement, but with respect and fairness to vulnerable people who are at risk or have been processed through the criminal justice system. We are particularly experienced in helping when you’ve not been eligible for legal aid.

CASS+ (Community Advice and Support Services+) is an innovative, unique and specialised charity which provides  relief and assistance to people when they are at their most vulnerable.

Whatever the reason you find yourself involved with the courts we can help:
