Helpline Volunteers

The Crime Victims Helpline, Freephone 116 006, is a listening and support service for victims of crime in Ireland. Our aim is to support, inform and empower victims of crime and all those impacted by crime. We provide time and space for victims to talk about their experiences. We also provide information about the criminal justice system and referrals to other services in the community.

We are currently seeking friendly, reliable people to provide telephone support to our Helpline callers for two-to-three hours a week Monday through Friday between the hours of 10.00 am and 5.00 pm at our office in Dublin 2. Volunteers must be compassionate and willing to listen without judgment. We welcome volunteers from all walks of life and value diversity.

A minimum of one year commitment is requested and extensive training is provided. All volunteers are subject to Garda vetting and reference checks.

Volunteer interviews will take place the week of 25th September. Volunteer training will take place over the course of two Saturdays—7th and 14th October. Alternate arrangements may be made for volunteers who can’t attend on those days.

If you are interested in volunteering with us, please complete the Helpline Volunteer  application form and return it to info@crimevictimshelpline.ie or 6-7 Hanover Street East, Dublin 2.

Any queries can be directed to info@crimevictimshelpline.ie or 01 408 6118.

Outreach Volunteers

Are you a people person? Do you enjoy getting out into the community and experiencing new things?  The Crime Victims Helpline is currently seeking friendly, outgoing people to help us raise awareness of our services.

The national Crime Victims Helpline, Freephone 116 006, is a listening and support service for victims of crime in Ireland. Our aim is to support, inform and empower victims of crime and all those impacted by crime. We provide time and space for victims to talk about their experiences. We also provide information about the criminal justice system and referrals to other resources in the community.

As an Outreach Volunteer, you will attend events on behalf of the Crime Victims Helpline (CVH). This is not a fundraising position and no bucket shaking is required. We simply want to get the word out about the services we provide. Some examples of the types of events CVH has attended in the past are National Ploughing Championship, Dublin Pride Parade, Cork Summer Show, Over 50s Expo, a wide variety of volunteer fairs and health and safety events.

Training will be provided and expenses associated with attending events will be paid for by CVH. We request that volunteers commit to training and participating in at least two events each year.

We welcome volunteers from all walks of life and value diversity.

If you are interested in volunteering with us, please complete the Outreach Volunteer application form and return it to info@crimevictimshelpline.ie or 6-7 Hanover Street East, Dublin 2.
