Victim Support volunteer appeal

Victim Support Scottish Borders helps people affected by all types of crime through a group of volunteers working directly with victims or supporting them when at court to give evidence.

They give emotional support, practical help and essential information to victims, witnesses and others affected by crime and antisocial behaviour, as well as help in claiming Criminal Injuries Compensation.

Victim Support is looking for volunteers and anyone interested can speak to staff at its office at 72 High Street, Galashiels (telephone 01896 751212).
