Have you some spare time on your hands?

If so, Victim Support NI, would love to hear from you.

The charity is hosting an event in Dungannon Courthouse on Friday, March 31 in the hope of attracting people to volunteer with Victim Support NI.

The organisation, which helps victims of crime in communities and courts throughout Northern Ireland, said more volunteers are needed to help deliver their services in the area.

Victim Support NI Volunteer Manager, Jolena Flett, said: “Victim Support NI is volunteer focused and driven. We wouldn’t be able to help victims of crime without the dedication, expertise and professionalism of our terrific volunteers.

“Volunteering can involve helping people in court or in the community, providing emotional support and practical assistance to victims of crime, form filling and giving people the confidence to make their voices heard.

“We offer first class accredited training and development opportunities for volunteers, equipping them with knowledge and skills to deliver a first class support service to victims. As well as being a great experience, it’s also a fantastic way to work as part of a caring and compassionate team while helping people in your local area.

“Currently we require more volunteers in the Dungannon area to provide support to people in the local community.”

The information session takes place at Dungannon Courthouse, Killyman Road, on March 31 at 4pm.
