April is Justice Month

At least 70,000 people give their time voluntarily to work with victims of crime, offenders and within the criminal justice process. Many more contribute to work to increase the safety of our neighbourhoods. Volunteers bring fresh approaches and commitment to both the capacity and the quality of these services.

And voluntary participation in crime prevention and criminal justice mean the system is more trusted and responsive to the needs of all our communities.

During April we're celebrating the essential contribution made by volunteers in often challenging and responsible roles.
