News update in response to Covid-19 outbreak

Published: Wednesday, March 18th, 2020


At Why me? we are working on our response to the impact of #Covid19, working restoratively as a team to support our beneficiaries, volunteers, ambassadors and each other. From 18th March 2020 the teams will be working from home and all face-to-face meetings will cease to take place until further notice. We will work with everyone virtually or on the phone, keeping in touch with our beneficiaries, volunteers, supporters and networks.

As we have a great team of staff and volunteers in place at Why me?, with experience and knowledge and skills, we will be focussing on supporting our beneficiaries in new ways and devising ways of continuing our important work to increase access to Restorative Justice for victims of crime.
