Anti-social behaviour victim volunteers
We want to support vulnerable people who have experienced and been affected by anti-social behaviour. Without the support of volunteers we can't do this.
We are looking for volunteers to provide a befriending and supporting role for the victims of anti-social behaviour. You may have been a victim yourself and have the time and flexibility to help others who have faced similar situations. Or you simply want to help others in your community. If so, our Anti-Social Behaviour Volunteer Service could be for you.
Set up to offer vulnerable victims the additional support they might need, the service involves you completing an online training course together with an induction session, where you will meet key agencies including Northumbria Police and The Gateshead Housing Company.
You will provide telephone support to the victim on a regular basis and will be provided with a mobile phone to do this. You will also complete an evaluation form at the end of your involvement with each victim.
We need you if you are:
- a good listener
- impartial and non-judgemental
- friendly and patient
- flexible and reliable
How to get involved
You must highlight why you think you are suitable for the role and detail what experience you have in the area of Anti-Social Behaviour as well as providing contact information for two references. It's easy to register and only takes minutes.
