VOLUNTEERS are being sought by a charity which helps support crime victims.

Emotional support and practical help to victims of crime and anti-social behaviour is given by Victim Support.

"We are currently recruiting new volunteers to join our amazing local team, so please get in touch – we would love to hear from you," said a spokesman.

A willingness to help, sensitivity, commitment and some time to spare are essential but no previous experience is needed.

Volunteers for Victim Support covering areas such as Swindon, Trowbridge, Chippenham and Devizes will gain experience, receive ongoing training and have their expenses paid.

For further information about the next volunteer awareness event contact the Wiltshire office at its Devizes headquarters on 01380 738878, email Wiltshire@victimsupport.org.uk or visit www.victimsupport.org.uk
