Volunteers are the backbone of our Organization. Without them, we couldn’t offer the services as we do to victims of crime. Volunteer duties are varied and matched according to a volunteer’s skills and knowledge, including but not limited to:
- Providing practical and emotional support and information for victims at the time of the crisis through our 24-hour phone help line.
- Provide support to victims, their families and prosecution witnesses during their contact with the court and justice system.
- Contacting victims with follow up information about the offender or the offence
- Contributing the victim’s perspective at conferences where the victim themselves is not able to attend
- Represent VoCNT at shows, expos and community activities to promote awareness of the organisation’s services
- Act as reception and first point of enquiry for VoCNT, at all times providing a warm and welcoming response and assist with an array of other administrative duties
All Volunteers are required to undergo a police check and apply for an ochre card, and must complete our training program.
To increase our ability to support and provide services to the Indigenous community, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders are encouraged to apply.
