Responding to communication needs in the justice system



The Advocate’s Gateway (TAG) provides free access to practical, evidence-based guidance on vulnerable witnesses and defendants. 

TAG was founded in 2012. It is an independent body run by a volunteer management committee chaired by Professor Penny Cooper. TAG’s main aims are to promote the maintenance of the highest ethical and professional standards in the questioning of people who are vulnerable in justice settings and to provide practitioners with evidence-based guidance and support in the form of toolkits. TAG’s toolkits have been widely endorsed by senior judges and by professional bodies. TAG does not endorse any third party training but encourages the use of its toolkits subject to compliance with copyright and licensing requirements.
