An intermediary may be used to help a vulnerable witness (a child or a vulnerable adult witness) give their evidence either in a police interview or in court. Their role is to assist communication and understanding, for example by explaining the questions put to and the answers given by witnesses who are unable to detect and cope with misunderstanding, or to clearly express their answers to questions.
