MAKE it your New Year's resolution to help others. That's the message from a local charity which is looking to recruit volunteers in Comet country to help victims of crime.
Victim Support Hertfordshire is launching a new recruitment drive to enable it to help more people in 2007.
The charity offers free and confidential advice to victims of crime and their families, helping to explain police and court procedures and to give information about compensation and insurance claims.
The charity, which in 2005 supported over 26,000 people, has recently changed the way it receives information from the police. The result is that Victim Support will be told about more crimes increasing the number of people that need its help.

David Padgett, the organisation's area manager said: "We want to make sure we can provide help to everyone who needs it or might benefit from it - and that means we need more volunteers.
"Anyone can become a victim of crime. We are going to need more volunteers in every town in the county who we can train to help victims."
