Claire Golden BSc Hons Criminology and Law

'...I was really interested in following the probation path so went to the University’s careers service, who told me about the volunteering opportunities available.

'The careers service set me up with a voluntary job in the witness protection suite at Teesside Magistrates Court. I did that for nearly two years. I was also involved with other voluntary agencies doing similar work.'
