About this opportunity

YSS are looking to recruit and train volunteer mentors across Shropshire, Telford, Worcestershire and Herefordshire for its new Through The Gate Mentoring Service.

This new mentoring service aims to encourage full integration back into the local community, prevent social exclusion, reduce re-offending and assist in rehabilitation.

Volunteers will collect prisoners on release from HM Prison Featherstone and HM Prison Hewell and transport them back to their local communities. The volunteer will then provide short term mentoring support linked to a SMART, focused, support plan; accompanying, supporting and encouraging their mentee to access local services according to their individual needs. Volunteers must be willing to undertake a two day mentoring training and induction programme and other criminal justice related training, complete relevant paperwork within organisational deadlines and understand the needs of complex and chaotic individuals.
