Witness Service Project Volunteer

 

Citizens Advice Witness Service is looking for volunteers to research relevant local organisations who might be able to provide support to witnesses for onward referral. The volunteer would need to:

  • Make contact with organisations using a variety of methods (phone, email, in person).
  • Obtain/collect information about what they do, who they support and how to refer.
  • Produce an electronic and hardcopy file of information.
  • Provide Witness Service contact details and information (where required).
  • Present findings at volunteer team meeting (optional).

The purpose of the project is to:

  • Ensure that witnesses understand the additional support they can receive from other organisations and are able to access the support they need.
  • Ensure witnesses are being referred/signposted to good quality organisations with up to date information and contact details.
  • Help volunteers feel more confident when talking about onward support.
  • Increase the percentage of witnesses receiving onward referral.

Volunteers should be 18+ and have computer skills, including the ability to undertake web-based research and use internal IT systems and communication methods. A commitment of 4-6 weeks (flexible hours) is required, and agreed expenses will be paid.
