Anglicare ACT and the Public Advocate of the ACT with the support of the Aboriginal Legal Services NSW/ACT, are in need of volunteers to assist with the ACT Interview Friends Program.
The Interview Friends program has been operating for more than 15 years and some volunteers have been with the program since its inception. It is a rewarding program to be involved in and is highly valued by members of the ACT Police.
Interview Friends provide independent and confidential support to children and young people who have been detained by police for interviewing in relation to an offence, and who do not have a parent or other adult who can be present with them. The interview Friend’s role is one of support and to ensure the rights of the child are upheld.
Interview friends provide assistance both during and outside of business hours (including weekends) and will require their own transport. It is envisaged that each Interview Friend would be rostered on approximately 2 – 3 nights per month. Interview Friends recruited to the program will be provided with initial and ongoing training and support.
If you are interested in becoming an Interview Friend or want to find out more about the program and the role of the Interview Friend, please contact Lois Kennedy at Anglicare on 6232 2488 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Applicants will be required to fill out an application form (see link at the bottom of this page) and must be willing to undergo a referee check, a full criminal history check and obtain a Working With Vulnerable People (WWVP) registration.
