Victim Support Orkney need volunteers who can provide emotional and practical support to those who have been affected by crime including those affected by past crimes.

The support is community based through telephone, email or home visits where possible.

Strict confidentiality must be adhered to at all times. Training takes place over three days in Inverness and Victim Support would expect volunteers to commit to a minimum period of 12 months volunteering after training.
