Victim Services is administered by a full-time Coordinator, full-time Assistant Coordinator and a part-time Family Violence Intervention Worker—but volunteers are at the heart of this valuable program!
Volunteering with Victim Services is an incredibly rewarding opportunity and one that some say is life changing. Victim Services volunteers are positioned to provide significant, meaningful assistance, often at the time of greatest need.
There are currently 22 Victim Services volunteers contributing to the Delta community.
Victim Services recruits new volunteers approximately once a year, depending on program requirements.
Volunteer Victim Support Workers provide direct services to victims of crime and trauma.
If you are interested in volunteering, our basic eligibility requirements are:
- Minimum 19 years of age
- Pass an extensive background check and security clearance
- Superior interpersonal and communication skills
- Valid BC driver’s licence
- Able to consistently contribute a minimum of four consistent hours each week (one 4 hour shift each week)
- Available for crisis intervention callout for one 24-hour period each month
Extensive training is provided to successful candidates.
2014 – we are not actively recruiting volunteers at this time but interested citizens are encouraged to call our office and request to be contacted during our next recruitment drive, date unknown at this time. Thank you for your interest in our program.
