Volunteer To Help Prevent Sexual Abuse

Details Hide[-]

We are recruiting for 3 projects in the Bristol/Avon area:

Young People's Project - working with young people between the ages of 14-17 who have sexually harmed but may not have been convicted. This project is more activity-based and gives volunteers a chance to make a real difference in a young person's life.

Intellectual Disabilites Project - working with adults with mild intellectual disabilities who have sexually harmed. You will need to be patient but have firm boundaries and be mindful to the fact that this group is vulnerable themselves.

Prison Project - working with 'Core Members' before they are released and then continuing the work in the community. You will need daytime availability and your own transport and be prepared to travel.

It would be helpful if you could indicate which project you are most interested in when enquiring.
