A character reference is a document that is tended to the court that supports that you are of good character and that the offence you have committed is not of normal character for you.

In a good character reference, you should include any volunteer work, any community work you’ve done and your current employment.

Anyone can write a character reference but we recommend that it is a close friend who has known you for a number of years, a family member and your employer.
