Community Court Volunteer - Basingstoke, Hart and Rushmoor

Are you aged between 14-24?  Looking for a different volunteer role or perhaps considering a career in the police or legal profession?

Hampshire Constabulary and Safer North Hampshire are offering an exciting opportunity for persons aged 14 to 24 years old to get involved and help support the community they live in by volunteering with either Hart & Rushmoor or Basingstoke Community Court.

The projects are aimed at diverting, supporting and educating first time offenders away from crime by a completely peer led court hearing.   

 Both the respondent and victim are invited and advocates allocated to support them through the process.  The panel then hear from both sides to understand what has happened and the impact the crime has had on the victim before deliberating on appropriate interventions for the young person to complete.

The 'courts' take place on either a Monday (Hart & Rushmoor) or Wednesday (Basingtoke) evening - volunteers arrive from 5.45pm. The 'Court' operates between 6-8pm.

Duke Of Edinburgh Award - volunteer hours can be used towards DofE however due to the need to train, vet, and provide uniform for volunteers a longer term commitment would be expected.

Please note if you wish to volunteer for Hart & Rushmoor volunteers are currently on a waiting list however there are currently vacancies on the Basingstoke team.
