Prison looking for volunteers

Have your say

A PRISON is looking for volunteers to help improve family visits.

Children’s Links is working with Stocken Prison to find volunteers to help in the children’s playarea, which is in the prison visits hall.

Volunteers are expected to read to the children, play games and help with craft activities. They would need to be able to commit to four hours a month, be non-judgemental and enjoy working with children.

Visits are on Wednesday between 1.45pm and 3.45pm and weekends between 8.45am and 11.30am and 1.45pm and 3.45pm

In return volunteers will receive travel expenses and training.
