I am looking to volunteer as part of a placement for my course. Can I do this at Pact? Yes! Getting involved in the justice system is an experience like no other. A Pact placement offers passionate and dedicated individuals the chance to make a real difference in the lives of those affected by imprisonment. We require a six-month commitment to the role and encourage you to commit to at least one shift a week. This ensures that you can build rapport and trust with service users. It also helps to build your skills if you wish to take on more advanced roles such as casework. We understand that your course may require you to complete your placement in a shorter time, and this can be discussed with your student placement coordinator at your university. Alternatively, you may wish to complete your placement hours and continue volunteering with us. If you are interested in any of the opportunities on offer, you will be pleased to know that our application process is very straightforward. Due to the time needed for DBS checks and prison vetting, we encourage you to apply at least eight weeks in advance, regardless of any unspent convictions. Please email our Student Placement Coordinator at [email protected].
