Court Support

EDDACS is a support and advocacy service for female victims of domestic abuse crimes going through the court process.

EDDACS supports its clients by explaining the court process, the potential outcomes from the court and by completing a risk assessment and individual support and safety plan with the client. EDDACS also prepare a report for all hearings toย  inform the court of the clients perception of her risk and of EDDACS assessment of the risk.ย  EDDACS have a worker within the domestic abuse court to advocate for the client. Sheriffs and fiscals, in our observation, regularly now ask if there is an EDDACS report.

EDDACS keep clients informed of the court progress and outcomes.

If you are currently going through the court process as the victim of a domestic abuse crime you can call EDDACS for support on 0131 315 8122.
