Victim Support is an independent charity offering free, confidential support to people directly and in-directly affected by crime. Our volunteers are highly trained to provide support and information to people from all communities, whatever crime they have suffered, whenever it happened and regardless of whether the Police are involved.
As a volunteer you will have the opportunity to develop new skills and experience, meet new people, help your community and find out more about crime, criminal justice and the legal system.
Most of our roles are flexible with options to give time during the day, in the evening or at weekends. We will provide the training and support you need, along with agreed expenses to carry out your role.
