Students win praise

Have your say

SHEFFIELD students who volunteer to help crime victims and witnesses have been praised for their efforts by charity workers.

Students play an important role for Victim Support, where volunteers outnumber paid staff by about four to one.

Jo Snart, a student at Sheffield University doing an MA in international criminology, started volunteering for Victim Support two years ago.

She said: “Helping victims to overcome their ordeal is rewarding, and challenging.”
