Volunteering with Victim Support can be very rewarding. You will make a difference to the lives of victims in your community as well as learn new skills through receiving full support and training from our team. However, it does require commitment due to the comprehensive training and nature of the role. If you have the time to commit, and are happy to undertake detailed training through eLearning, workshops and mentoring then please get in touch to find out if we have any vacancies.
From providing immediate support to victims of crime to helping our staff with administration, there are lots of ways you can volunteer with us.
Cope and Recovery Volunteer
As a Cope and Recovery Volunteer you’ll be assigned to a Victim Care Advocate working within our cope and recovery team.
The cope and recovery team provides support to people who have been a victim of crime and you’ll help them to provide emotional and practical support to people affected by crime.
As a Triage Volunteer you’ll be based in our Sheffield office and will provide telephone support to victims of crime, as well as helping the triage team with administration. This might include sending letters and texts.
As a Communications Volunteer, your role will be to work closely with our Engagement Officer to help promote the service and fundraise for local services.
This could include researching local events, like Sheffield Pride, where we can raise awareness of our services, and organising stalls, ordering merchandise and arranging for a team of volunteers and staff to attend on the day.
You might also organise fundraising events like a bucket collection at a local football ground. If you have skills and experience using social media for another charity or business, you can help us promote our services and events on Twitter and Facebook.
