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 2-to-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. We welcome volunteers from all walks of life and value diversity. Good English is a must but additional languages are a huge plus.
A minimum of one year commitment is requested and extensive training is provided. All volunteers are subject to Garda vetting and reference checks.
If you are interested in volunteering with us, please complete the Helpline Volunteer application form and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org or 6-7 Hanover Street East, Dublin 2.
Any queries can be directed to email@example.com or 01 408 6118.
