The building houses six Magistrates courts, three are used for Adult Crime cases and the others hear Family and Employment Tribunal cases. There are also offices for the Probation Service and for the administration of the magistrates' court criminal and civil business within Cambridgeshire.

The Magistrates take an active part in community engagement and regularly give talks and presentations to community groups and schools about the work of a magistrates' court. This work is under the Magistrates in the Community (MIC) banner. There is a Cambridgeshire team and for information on the recent local Magistrates in the Community activities click here.
