The OSS provides accompaniment to Garda Stations, Court – District and Circuit, GPs offices etc.
Accompaniment can prove to be an invaluable tool to a client who may be experiencing low self-esteem or intimidation. Being afraid of confrontation with their violent (ex-) partner can result resignation. Professional accompaniment can help clients to follow through with legal procedures, knowing that they are not alone.
Lack of confidence can also mean that a client will not ask questions when they do not understand what is being said or when they want additional information.. Accompaniment can also deliver an important message to a perpetrator that the client is not alone, has support and is believed.
