About the Role: 

They are looking to recruit a Volunteering Project Manager to lead a new recruitment drive for volunteers and support all elements of their volunteer programme. This is an exciting opportunity to support the mobilisation of a number of new services to support prisoners’ children and families across multiple regions in addition to existing mentoring services for former prisoners, and family members, in communities all over England and Wales. 

Volunteers are at the heart of their services, and they believe volunteers make a unique contribution. Last year, volunteers gave over 24,000 hours of service. They depend on contributions of time and skills and they want to attract even more volunteers, of all ages (18+), and from the diverse communities, including people with lived experience of the justice system, reflecting the people they serve. They work to reduce the risk of re-offending and of inter-generational offending, through supporting healthy family relationships during a prison sentence, and by providing practical and emotional support. You will enable them to extend our vital support to many more people affected by imprisonment.
