Thinking of getting involved?

Being a part of the process can be hugely rewarding. Here’s what one of our jurors said about their experience...

I eventually wound down from an experience that I do not think I will ever forget. Thank you for your hard work during this most challenging process and your incredible facilitation. This Jury was a huge group with high emotions and opposing views - it was a credit to you in the way you handled yourselves and the group.
