Feedback & Comments

Alan Johnston, Sheriff Clerk, Ayr Sheriff Court:

"It is a pleasure for me, as Sheriff Clerk, to work with such a dedicated team as the Witness Service at Ayr Sheriff Court.

They deserve praise of the highest order for the work and support they give to victims and witnesses, and to myself, day in day out.

They are a credit to Victim Support Scotland and to all who offer support within the Criminal Justice System."

Received from a witness to Ayr Sheriff Court:

"Thank you so much for all your support yesterday. Your advice and good humour certainly made a difficult situation more bearable. Thanks again."

To All the Volunteers:

"I would like to thank you all for what you do in supporting people; having a son with special needs and being supported through a difficult and unknown process.  You were all very kind and considerate.  Your job is invaluable."

"Thank you so much for helping me with everything.  After we told my mum I felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders.  I did my exam yesterday and it went okay so hopefully I have passed. I am looking forward to a new start in the New Year."
