“Advanced training for new and existing volunteers”.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organisation and we are always looking for more to join with us. You do not need any special qualifications as we will train you – all you need to be is a good listener!
To ensure our new and existing volunteers have the most up-to-date training when dealing with victims of crime, as part of our affiliation in Europe, we joined with Victim Support Northern Ireland to combine our training programme with theirs to ensure we had the most up to date training and support structure to deal with all victims of crime across the island.
Our first volunteer training session of 2020 was held in the Great Northern Hotel, Bundoran, Co Donegal on the 20th of January and we were delighted to have had Jolena Flett, Head of Services at Victim Support Northern Ireland to conduct the training on our behalf. We had planned additional volunteer training days in February, March, and April at locations in New Ross, Tullamore, Cavan, Galway and Kerry but with Covid-19, we have had to defer until later in the year. We will be notifying all those that applied to become volunteers with us of the new dates and locations in due course.
