I am looking to volunteer as part of a placement for my course. Can I do this at Pact? Volunteering in the Criminal Justice sector can take time. Due to the nature of our work, our projects are not ideal for fulfilling a placement requirement or for volunteering for a specific period of time (summer holidays, Christmas break etc). However we do regularly offer placements for Social Work students, particularly in our Family Services. Our projects tend to have a lengthy recruitment procedure. We invest in selecting, training and supporting our volunteers, so we’re looking for people who want to stay with us for a minimum of 6 months.
