Tender Overview

The Department of Justice and Attorney-General, in response to recommendations of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, is establishing a witness intermediary scheme to assist witnesses in child sexual offence investigations and prosecutions to give their best evidence.

Applications will be sought from individuals with qualifications in speech pathology, psychology, occupational therapy or social work.

The role of the intermediary is to facilitate communication between the witness and police and/or the witness and courts. The role of the intermediary is to:

  • assess witness communication and describe any specific communication assistance required;
  • provide practical strategies on how to best communicate with the witness and how to pose a question to get the most reliable evidence;
  • inform directions hearings, where applicable, to establish court communication guidelines for a vulnerable witness; and
  • write court reports on an individual’s communication needs.

The scheme will operate as a two-year pilot in two locations (Brisbane and Cairns)
