For Belong: Making Justice Happen
Criminal justice charity Belong provides hope, rehabilitation and recovery for victims and perpetrators of crime. We are working with several criminal justice organisations, to provide one to one mentoring support in London communities, to children, young people and adults who have criminal convictions and want to change their lives.
We have exciting opportunities available for committed, compassionate people to volunteer as one to one mentors with us. Volunteers will work with children, young people and adults serving community sentences in London.
Successful applicants will be invited to participate in an initial two day training course at HMPYOI Isis prison, South East London, from 10-5pm on Saturday 26th March and Saturday 2nd April 2022.
An enhanced DBS check is required for this role and all volunteers will be supported to undergo this.
Full support and supervision will be provided to volunteers.
Apply now to join the Belong team! Interviews will be held remotely on zoom.
One to one mentors will build a professional working relationship with individuals as they serve their community sentence and work towards a crime free future. Mentoring sessions will take place once per week or fortnight, for one to two hours per session. During the sessions volunteers will offer support to individuals to assist them to access education, training and employment; develop life skills; work through previous traumas and build positive relationships.
Start Date: 03/02/2022
End Date: 30/11/2023
Volunteers need to be able to commit to the role for at least one year. Mentoring sessions in the community will take place during weekdays or weekends.
