Young Witness Supporter
About the Volunteer Opportunity
The NSPCC’s Young Witness Service is recruiting volunteers to support young people who may have to give evidence in criminal trials as victims or witnesses. Volunteer involvement is usually during office hours on week days with occasional evenings. You must have an interest in and experience of working with children, and have a driving licence or access to transport.
About the Organisation
Working with young victims and witnesses of crime, Young Witness Service offers support and guidance through the challenging court process. The NSPCC’s Young Witness Service is a free, independent and confidential service, provided by a team of social work staff and volunteers’ full training and out of pocket expenses will be provided. Whilst it can be challenging, this is an extremely worthwhile and rewarding role that supports children through a very difficult period in their lives.

Volunteers may be required to complete an Access NI disclosure for some volunteering roles. A criminal record will not necessarily be a bar to obtaining a volunteer position.
