Find a JP or Cdec mentor

Newly appointed Justices of the Peace (JPs) and Commissioner for Declarations (Cdecs) can get support through our mentoring program.

Mentoring program

Our mentoring program allows you, as a new JP or Cdec, to work with an experienced JP or Cdec to:

  • gain the skills and knowledge you need to provide services to Queenslanders
  • build confidence and better understand of your role as a witnessing officer
  • seek help and advice in professional development
  • learn to accept responsibility for decisions and actions.

You will be able to build a relationship with your mentor, ask them questions about things that concern you, and set personal goals with them to work towards as a JP or Cdec.

The mentoring program takes place within our JPs in the Community program where you will attend one of our many signing sites. Signing sites are usually located at:

  • major shopping centres
  • libraries
  • courts
  • universities
  • hospitals.

You will be required to complete and return a volunteer registration form before commencing to ensure you are covered by the Queensland Government’s liability insurance. When at a JPs in the Community signing site you will be provided all stationery (i.e. stamps, handbooks, logbooks, pens, rulers) required to carry out your role.
