EMERGENCY ANNOUNCEMENT – 19th March 2020.
Disruption caused by the Coronavirus Outbreak.
In common with many similar organisations and with the best interests of our volunteers and staff in mind, we have reluctantly decided to suspend all volunteering activities in the prison until further notice. During this time our Volunteer Coordinator will be working from home, so will not have access to the usual resources, many of which are hosted on the prison’s secure computer network.
We will still be pleased to log and acknowledge any new volunteer applications, but will be unable to progress them in the usual way during the current emergency. We hope you will bear with us and that you will still be interested in joining us once the crisis has passed.
