Victim Support

Have you got what it takes to help ensure victims and witnesses of homicide are given the support they need and the respect they deserve? Many people face the effects of homicide alone and confused. Your support could help individuals and their families to feel stronger, understood and able to move forward with their lives.

Victim Support are looking for volunteers who have previous experience of providing on-going support to victims of homicide, or other relevant experience gained in a professional capacity.

They are looking for volunteers who can typically support people bereaved by homicide over a period of at least 12 months and for at least two hours a week whenever possible. This could involve face-to-face and/or telephone support. This is a flexible role which you are able to carry out at times convenient to you and to the clients. This may include some evening (up to 7.30pm) and weekend work if it is mutually convenient for all parties.

Applicants must be willing to attend our Volunteer Open Day on 25th May in London and successful applicants will be required to attend a face-to-face training course on the following dates; 15, 16, 17, 20 and 21st June, also held in London.

Wheely Tots is looking for a Trustee

Wheely Tots is a registered charity (CIO) which aims to get people to think about cycling more regularly and safely in London.  As a start up social enterprise we have chosen to generate our own income by providing help and support to our members and requesting donations in return.  We also access grant funding but plan to make this significantly less than 50% of our income .  Wheely Tots is based in North London around Woodberry Down, but work throughout London.  We work with all road users including pedestrians, drivers of all vehicles and cyclists.

We are looking for a trustee to join our board.  This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to the running of a small charitable organisation.
