Working in partnership with HM Courts and Tribunal Service, Supporting Online Justice, project has produces a series of video guides for lay users for use in tribunals and family courts. The main output for this project has been the development of five films to help lay users of the justice system access and participate in online hearings. These accessible films have been developed using an extensive process of consultation and testing with a range of lay users. The films include a generic film designed to be useful across a range of courts and tribunals, along with jurisdiction specific films for: the Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal; the Social Security and Child Support Tribunal; the Employment Tribunal (England & Wales/ Scotland) and the Family Court (Private). They are available with subtitles in six languages along with a British Sign Language version of each.
