Community engagement volunteer

Our community engagement volunteers form a vital connection between Victim Support and each local community. Although we are a national organisation, these close local connections are very important to us.

Community engagement volunteers help us to engage our local communities and inform them about crime and our work. There are many different ways this can be done, such as:

  • Giving presentations to community groups and schools about crime and our work
  • Supporting our team by writing to local organisations such as parish councils and supermarkets to secure extra funding
  • Running community engagement information sessions in your local community to raise awareness of Victim Support in the local area eg having a stall at a local fete, attending local groups.
