To anyone considering joining Pact, you would be joining an amazing, supportive team.

I got involved with Pact for a few reasons. As a child, my parents fostered teens who were at risk of offending or had offending, and it was very rewarding for both my parents and the teens. After university, I was asked if I would be interested in participating in a research project with the CPS. I realised that the justice system was something I was very passionate about, and so I found Pact online and joined the team as a volunteer. 

I have been with Pact for a year and a half now. There isn’t really an average day with Pact; every day is different. I can take as many or as little service users as I can manage. Every shift is different, as every service user has different needs and different levels of support.  

Sometimes when I first meet a service user, they can be reluctant to open up or have little motivation to improve, and it’s really fulfilling to watch them flourish with the right help and support.  

To anyone considering joining Pact, you would be joining an amazing, supportive team and receive lots of free and very interesting training. The feeling of knowing you have changed someone’s life for the better cannot be put into words.
