Meet the Crimestoppers team who keep our 500-plus volunteers in touch

Vol 3
Carolyn, Greg and Helen

Greg Rees (Volunteer Manager), Helen Cleary (Volunteer Co-ordinator) and Carolyn Randall (Volunteer Assistant) comprise the team which provides support, guidance and a friendly voice at the end of the phone to our volunteers around the whole of the UK.

 

After starting his career in the private sector, Greg has been involved for over 20 years in the voluntary sector, working in supported social housing and for substance abuse agencies in South Wales, Bristol and the West Country.

He's passionate about the value that volunteers and volunteering brings to any organisation, and is convinced that a first-class volunteering experience invariably points emphatically to a first-class organisation.

Greg's relaxation includes riding his motorbike around the twisted roads and beautiful mountains of Wales.

 

Helen worked with the Metropolitan Police Service for 13 years before being made redundant in 2011. She was an Analyst and Researcher in the Intelligence Unit for some time, which is where she first came across Crimestoppers.

After a short time as a Crimestoppers Volunteer herself in 2012, Helen joined the staff in our 24/7 Call Bureau in 2014 as a Call Agent. She then spent 18 months as a Fundraising Assistant in our Central Office team, before leaving the charity for a short while. She has recently rejoined as our Volunteer Co-Ordinator, and says that she is very much looking forward to the change of role and the new challenges it brings with it.

Outside work Helen's hobbies include netball, bootcamp and spending time with my family.

 

Carolyn has been with Crimestoppers for more than 20 years, and was one of the first Area Managers in the country, first with Southern and then with Sussex. Among many highlights she was involved with during this time was SNAP (Say No And Phone), a national initiative promoted through dance nights for young people which involved 30 areas across the Southern region and upwards of 1,000 youngsters attending in partnership with local organisations such as schools and youth groups.

Carolyn now performs valuable work with volunteer enquiries, processing the paperwork for new and leaving volunteers and ensuring that our essential central records are kept up-to-date.
