Could you provide a positive role-model for children who have a parent in prison?

Befriending / Visiting volunteers needed for Children Heard and Seen

We are looking for volunteer mentors to support children who have a parent in prison.

This is a weekly or every other week commitment, and involves being someone to talk to, being a positive role model and someone to have fun with.

These children often face negative outcomes as a result of having a parent in prison; the charity is working to prevent this.

The volunteer mentor would be supported with supervision and training.
