Volunteering for Justice
Welcome to our Volunteering for Justice web page
This resource brings together over 50 volunteering opportunities in the Diocese of Worcester and wider West Midlands area, focused on providing support to people affected by crime, the rehabilitation of offenders and support to criminal justice and other agencies working in the field.
Volunteering for Justice is the culmination of a joint project between the Diocese of Worcester Criminal Justice Affairs Group and the University of Worcester with essential support provided by the diocesan communications team. The project was established following a major Conference held in Worcester in November 2015 which identified that many people who wished to offer their skill on a voluntary basis in criminal justice related areas often found difficulty in identifying available opportunities. This web page seeks to fill that gap by offering a signposting service which is easy to use, and provides useful information at the click of a button. We hope you find it helpful.
In bringing together this directory of volunteering opportunities, neither the Diocese nor the University of Worcester endorses any particular organisation or specific volunteering role. As in all volunteering opportunities it is essential for every volunteer to ensure that adequate health and safety provisions, including risk assessments, are in place, and that appropriate insurance cover exists if necessary.
