A.S.S.C. Accompaniment Support Services for Children

Associate Member

Accompaniment Support Service for Children (A.S.S.C.) was set up in 2020 to address the needs of young people as they negotiate their way through the Criminal Justice System. Our service provides accompaniment and advocacy for young people and their families at different stages through the justice system. With our support, we help ensure that this happens without re-traumatisation or re-victimisation and that young people are treated with compassion and dignity.

A.S.S.C. was set up as there was no dedicated service for children during what is often a stressful and overwhelming experience for young people and victim support is a right under both Irish and EU legislation. We are the only organisation in Ireland committed to safeguarding children during criminal proceedings, adhering to the guidelines of the Children’s First Act 2015.

A.S.S.C. is a not-for-profit charity and is governed by a voluntary Board of Trustees. The day-to-day running of the organisation is conducted by two Senior Directors. The founding members of A.S.S.C. are Grace Jordan, Eve Farrelly & Lynette Bradshaw.
