Service Delivery Volunteer (Kirckaldy/Glenrothes)

  • VO88558


Description

As Scotland’s leading charity to supporting all victims, witnesses and families of all crime types across Scotland, you will be joining a committed team dedicated to helping people with practical and emotional support in the aftermath of a crime.

Victim Support supports victims of crime, witnesses and their family members, regardless of who they are and their circumstances. The service is independent, free, non-judgemental and confidential. They offer bespoke support, personalised to the needs of each individual.

They are looking for enthusiastic and committed people from all backgrounds from across Fife.

While qualifications and experience are good to have, what’s more important to us is to have a ‘can do’ attitude and be committed to providing compassionate and informative services to people who have been affected by crime.
