Victim Support seek volunteers


Victim Support NI, the leading organisation supporting victims of crime in Northern Ireland, is hosting an event in Dungannon on September 30 in the hope of attracting people to volunteer with the charity.

The organisation, which helps victims of crime in communities and courts throughout Northern Ireland, said more volunteers are required to deliver their crucial support services at their outreach centre at Dungannon Courthouse.

Victim Support NI will be holding two information sessions on 30 September at 1pm and 4pm at the Dungannon Courthouse for anyone interested in volunteering.

Victim Support NI Volunteer Manager, Jolena Flett, said: “Victim Support NI is volunteer focused and driven. We simply 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 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 court and in the local community.

“We will be holding information sessions for people interested in volunteering on 30 September at 1pm and 4pm at Dungannon Courthouse, The Courthouse 46 Killyman Road, Dungannon BT71 6DE. If you have an interest in this type of role please email or call 02890277778.”
