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 resources in the community.
We are currently seeking friendly, reliable people to provide telephone support to our Helpline callers for 2-3 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. A minimum of one year commitment is requested and training is provided. All volunteers are subject to Garda vetting and reference checks.
We highly value volunteers with life experience and older volunteers are very welcome.
If you are interested in volunteering, please complete an application and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any queries, please contact Michele at 01 408 6118.
