The New Brunswick Department of Justice and Public Safety is launching a new Court Support Volunteer Program to support vulnerable victims of crime. Being a victim of crime can be traumatic for anyone. The role of the volunteer is to help vulnerable victims feel more comfortable in court.

We are seeking individuals who are willing and able to support vulnerable victims throughout criminal court proceedings. You might be retired, a college or university student, a part-time worker, or a concerned citizen.

The Department of Justice and Public Safety is committed to ensuring our volunteers are equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to provide court support. This includes training and mentoring all of our volunteers to prepare them for this important work.

To learn more about the program, the volunteer selection process and the training provided, take a look at the Court Support Volunteer Program FAQ’s.
