VOLUNTEERS are being sought by a charity that helps to support victims of crime.

Victim Support gives emotional support and practical help to victims of crime and anti-social behaviour.

For those who want to gain experience in volunteering and become part of a team there is a volunteer awareness event on Saturday, November 26.

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, or to sign up to volunteer, contact the Wiltshire office at its Devizes headquarters on 01380 738878, email Wiltshire@victimsupport.org.uk or visit www.victimsupport.org.uk
