Working and volunteering in prisons training
Are you new to working or volunteering in prisons? Do you have volunteers or staff members who want to increase their understanding of the prison system?
Working or volunteering in a prison can be quite daunting due to the many complexities associated with its unique environment and establishing the role of the voluntary sector within that can be challenging.
Join us at this three-hour training session online on Thursday 8 June 2023 from 10:00 – 13:00 for voluntary sector staff and volunteers in which we aim to raise awareness of the prison environment and provide information on key aspects such as staffing structures and departments, prison procedures and current challenges associated with working in prisons.
We will explore ways in which voluntary sector staff can have meaningful and professional engagement with prisons operationally, as well as ensuring safety and responsible ways of working are understood and prioritised.
Places are limited to a maximum of 20 participants per workshop.
We are also able to run this workshop in-house for organisations, either online or face-to-face, that have several staff and/or volunteers that would benefit from this. If you’re interested, email email@example.com with what you’d be looking for and we can provide further details.
