Here are some of the things people have said about the help theyâ€™ve received from VWCCS:
I donâ€™t know how I can adequately thank you for all the care and kindness you gave to me last Wednesday.
I was extremely nervous about meeting members of the offenderâ€™s family as I had been abused, verbally, after the sentencing and felt very vulnerable.
I have the greatest admiration for the VWCCS Inc and having experienced first hand of the help you give to so many people I cannot thank you enough. … thank you for giving up so much your time as a volunteer and to your colleagues as well.Â The event of last week was not nearly as traumatic as I expected and for that I can thank you.
My very sincere thank you for everything & I will never forget your kindness.Anon
Hello, my name is Peter and I had to attend Parramatta Children’s Court as a witness to an assault that occurred to me in May this year. I’m a taxi driver and had a incident that left me with severe injuries, and thankfully the defendant was found guilty by the court.
On the day the help I received by both Judy and Sue was substantial!! I was very nervous as this is a most unpleasant experience! But both Judy and Sue were wonderful in their help to me with even Judy sitting in the court room with me!
I am very very grateful and wish to express and praise their help to me! I would like to send my utmost appreciation. Thanking you very much.Peter
First of all I wholeheartedly thank you for your support.Â It was a blessing I didnâ€™t think I needed until the end.
Again thank you for your support.Â VWCCS, from my one and hopefully last experience, do fantastic work.Anon
Thank you so much for taking the time to talk me through the whole court process â€“ it was very helpful & has gone a long way to making me feel calmer & more confident….Anon
… Finally, thank you for everything that you have done for me.Â You are truly aÂ very professional, but more importantly, a very nice and courteous lady and in just talking and dealing with you over past days, our verbal interaction was the best medication that I have had since being in hospital.Anon
I would really like to thankyou and your staff for the care that you gave me and my family today.Â You helped me so much today and believe me what an honour it was to have met you today. I’m certainly glad my daughter had the privledge of knowing and meeting you and you really helped her.Â She is exhausted as you can imagine.
I would like to discuss with you later when im not so tired myself about how <my daughter> does a victim impact statement, how I go about getting some counselling for myself, and after the case is finished… how do we go for victims compensation?Â But we can talk about these issues at a later date.
As I said, once again a massive thank you deep from our hearts.Â You are such a nice lady, thanks again always.Anon
I just wanted to thank you for the services ofÂ the VWCCS, in particular the assistance to me provided by <the volunteer> in an indecent & ABH assault trial that concluded at the Downing Centre Local Court…
<The volunteer> provided valuable assistance to the numerous prosecution witnesses I had in this sensitive court hearing, and not only was she supportive and explanatory to the witnesses she was also of much help to me during the trial.
I have worked with <the volunteer> on a previous trial and was most appreciative of her assistance, and look forward to her assistance and that of the VWCCS in the future. It makes a Police Officer’s job much easier.
Please pass on my thanks to her,Julia Bradley
Thank you very much for your very kind e-mail.Â I had a chance late in the trial to speak to both <volunteers>, and to thank them very much for all of their assistance during the trial.Â The successful outcome of the trial depends upon so many people, and their contribution is very much appreciated.
It was a great result and a recognition of the extraordinary efforts put in by the team.Â I will pass your message on to <both police officers> who are currently on deck. I spoke to them yesterday after the verdict; both were very excited about the result.
Can I just take a moment to thank you and your team for the support you gave to our troops through this difficult trial process and all of the work you all do, outstanding.
Thankyou very much for organising this VIS.Â It is very much appreciated.
I will be sure to use your service again if the need arises, and will recommend it to my colleagues.Â I have been very impressed.
Thank you so much for all of your encouragement & support whilst I was job hunting.Â I am so glad I have had the opportunity to work for VWCCS, it is such a fantastic organisation.
