Volunteers are such a valued part of Pact, and we seek to treat our volunteers the same way we treat our paid staff. This includes ensuring you receive a good induction, training, support and supervision sessions.

Most of our volunteering opportunities involve providing contact with and support to our service users; each of whom has their own individual needs; this makes volunteering with us varied and fulfilling.

Our volunteers speak of the opportunity that volunteering with us has provided them to develop valuable and transferrable attributes such as listening and being non-judgemental, in addition to obtaining an insight into, and experience of the criminal justice sector. Everyone who volunteers for us has a different reason for doing so, and we do our best to ensure that the opportunity matches their expectation.
