Victim Support NI, the leading organisation supporting victims of crime in Northern Ireland, has launched a drive for volunteers in the Downpatrick area.

Victim Support logoThe charity, which helps victims of crime in communities and courts throughout Northern Ireland, said more volunteers are required to deliver their crucial support services.

Victim Support NI Chief Executive, Geraldine Hanna, said:

“Volunteers are the bedrock of Victim Support NI selflessly giving up their time and using their expertise to help victims cope with the impact of crime.

“This can include providing emotional support and practical help to people in the aftermath of crime or supporting victims and witnesses ahead of, and during, court to give them the confidence to make their voices heard.

“We offer excellent training and development opportunities for volunteers, equipping them with knowledge and skills to deliver a first class support service to victims.

“Currently we require more volunteers in the Downpatrick area to provide support to people in court and in the local community. If you have an interest in this type of role please emailwsdownpatrick@victimsupportni.org.uk or call Karen Henry in our Downpatrick office on 02844616233.”

For any further information, please contact Catherine Doran at Victim Support Communications on 07771990636/02871370086 or catherined@victimsupportni.org.uk
