The new Orange app should give Victim Support ideas about micro-volunteering
Victim Support has partnered with Orange to launch a mini survey application which collects information about ‘micro-volunteering’.
The Orange app will give Victim Support information about popular volunteering ideas so they can work out which ones to develop to give victims and witnesses of crime an even better service.
The Do Some Good initiative created by Orange allows users to take bite-sized actions on their mobiles to make a difference to issues they care about.
All actions take five minutes or less and allow users to take part at a time and place that suits them. For every four hours of time dedicated to volunteering, users are then entitled to music rewards which could include tickets to a gig of their choice through Ticketmaster or prize draws for tickets to Orange Rockcorps gigs.
Victim Support’s Head of Volunteering, Chris Wade said: "We have a long and proud history of people dedicating years of service to victims and witnesses through volunteering with us. But not everyone able to volunteer on a long-term basis.
"Through the Orange app, we are giving people the chance to make a difference in new bite sized and innovative ways."
People are encouraged to complete the survey to help shape ideas on how volunteers can help support victims and witnesses crime.
