Victim Services Volunteer

Our volunteers have a very important role in providing emotional support for victims of crime and trauma. Volunteers are not professional counsellors or therapists. They are community minded citizens who are excellent listeners and are both compassionate and empathetic. Volunteers receive an extensive training program followed by ongoing professional development training.

We recruit for our volunteer team annually, throughout the month of September. If you have questions about becoming a Victim Services Volunteer, please contact us at [email protected]
