The Child Witness Centre works in partnership with the justice system and community partners to provide support services and court preparation for children and youth who are victims and witnesses of crime, and their families, involved in the criminal justice system.
Founded in 1981, over 250 child victims and witness from Waterloo Region and Wellington County are referred to the Child Witness Centre each year.
As the lead agency on Kitchener’s Child and Youth Advocacy Centre, Child Witness Centre provides the Child and Youth Advocate, offering wraparound support for children, youth and families affected by abuse regardless of whether or not charges are laid.
