As the new Chief Executive of Victim Support, it’s a great pleasure to communicate and engage directly with all the different groups who support our work with victims. There are so many people across New Zealand who help us in so many ways to carry out the valuable work we do with victims of crime and trauma.
No group is more important than our 800+ volunteers who work at the frontline 24/7 to improve the lives of victims. They support victims in their hour of need – people who are facing what might be the worst day in their lives.
Could you be there?
Our volunteers are everyday Kiwis who have chosen to be there for people facing a difficult situation. We totally rely on our volunteer force, which varies from 800 to 1100 depending on the time of year and training opportunities.
From January to May 2014, we are running a special Maori recruitment campaign working with Mai FM radio in Auckland City (including Panui community notice board and their website) and ‘Mana’ magazine (February/March 2014 issue and their website).
If you are interested in volunteering or know someone who might be, please use any of these links:
