Interested in volunteering with us?

Do you have some spare time to give? We have various roles available to suit the needs of everyone.

The continued commitment of our volunteers across England and Wales ensures that Victim Support is able to help as many victims of crime as we do. Take a look below to find out about the many ways our volunteers help victims to move forward with their lives.

There is an easy application process, which means you won’t spend an age trying to get started with us. This process may include volunteers being subject to checks such as references, identification, DBS and/or police vetting.

Covid-19 Volunteering Update

During these difficult times we really appreciate the dedication and commitment of our volunteer community. We have all had to show a level of resilience and flexibility that most of us will find difficult. This is a particularly challenging time for the victims and witnesses that we support.

We continue to recruit volunteers but roles will likely be slightly different to account for the fact of the lack of face to face contact. Until further notice all face-to-face interviews and training will be suspended, therefore interviews will be conducted via video link/Skype and training will be delivered online. Your local volunteer manager will advise on how they will facilitate this.
