How do you know when it's your turn to give evidence?

As a witness you are not allowed to go into the courtroom until it is time to give your evidence. This is because you are not allowed to hear what other witnesses say.

When it is your turn, the court officer comes to where you are waiting and calls your name. They will then take you and your support person, if you have one, into the courtroom.

If you are a child or a victim of a sexual assault you may be able to give your evidence in a separate room without going into the courtroom. This is called the Remote Witness Room or Closed Circuit Television Room (CCTV).
