Work with us

We are currently recruiting new Trustees. If you are interested in finding out more or would like to apply please click HERE and read our recruitment pack.

If it wasn’t for our volunteers, the young men in our prisons would not receive the support they need. There are three ways to volunteer with us:

Become a mentor:
We will provide you with training before you start, support you on the job and give you ongoing training to make sure you are fully equipped. Our mentors know they have a safe and supportive working environment and even if you’ve been a mentor before, we’ll need you to take our training to make sure you have the specialist skills.

Peer mentoring:
The saying “it takes one to know one” is true.  Our peer-mentor volunteers relate in a personal way and we are seeing tremendous impact and change through these relationships. If you are an ex-offender, this is an excellent opportunity. We will provide thorough training and ongoing support.

Skill-specific volunteering:
Whatever your skills are, it can help to resettle and rehabilitate a young person. So, if you love running websites, social media or writing grant applications or are a counsellor, business man or teacher (or anything else) – we’d love to hear from you.

We are looking for volunteers with specific skills. In fact, whatever your skills are, it’s very likely they can help to resettle and rehabilitate a young person. So, if you love running websites, social media or writing grant applications or are a counsellor, business man or teacher (or anything else) – we’d love to hear from you. Get in touch via our contact page.

Our training

We deliver our two-day training programme over two consecutive Saturdays four times a year.  Our training covers the different aspects of our work as well as the Criminal Justice and Prison systems. We will also look at different tools that can be used to enable the mentor to identify hidden skills that the young person may not know that they have as well as our “Theory of Change” so you will understand how change happens and what it actually takes to change.
