Become a Voice Volunteer
Our volunteers are an essential and valued part of the Voice team. Without them we wouldn’t be able to help and support as many people as we do.
Voice volunteers help people who have experienced crime in a variety of ways; from acting as caseworkers to providing telephone support and liaising with other agencies.
Why should I become a Voice Volunteer?
Becoming a volunteer will equip you with new skills and provide huge personal satisfaction as you help others to cope, recover and thrive following their experience.
Giving back to your community and helping those in unfortunate positions is one of the most rewarding things you can do. Along the way you’ll meet likeminded people and gain an enormous sense of fulfilment. You may even be able to get time off work to volunteer with us from your employer, as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility policy.
What training will I receive?
We’ll train you to feel calm, comfortable, confident and knowledgeable in order to be able to support people who have affected by different types of trauma on the roads.
You’ll be able to listen, empathise and help the people you meet to regain the strength to move on and cope with their experience.
Basic training involves learning about how the criminal justice system works; how to access support services; road safety and the impact of road accidents on people. We have a wealth of training on offer for anyone who joins us; including regular one to ones with experience members of staff, access to volunteer eForums, eLearning and much, much more.
What experience or qualifications do I need?
You don’t need any qualifications or previous experience to volunteer with Voice. All we ask is that you’re over the age of 18, have a willingness to help and can spare a little time. We’ll do the rest.

As part of processing your volunteer application, we’ll complete a check with the Disclosure and Barring Service (formally known as a Criminal Records Bureau check). This is for the protection of the people we help. Having a criminal record does not automatically disqualify you from volunteering for Voice.
