Could you help victims of crime?

DO you have what it takes to be a committee member for Victim Support Scottish Borders?

Victim Support helps people affected by all types of crime through a group of volunteers working directly with victims or supporting them when at court to give evidence, through the Witness Service. They give emotional support, practical help and essential information to victims, witnesses and others affected by crime and anti social behaviour as well as help in claiming Criminal Injuries Compensation when appropriate.

The local branch of Victim Support is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join its committee and help support people who have been affected by crime and anti-social behaviour across the Borders. If you can bring your own experience of the Borders community and skills gained through life or work experience, this might be a role for you!

The committee meets four times each year and committee members also take part in other activities.

Victim Support Scottish Borders is based at Galashiels, telephone 01896751212.
