Do you believe everyone in custody deserves to be treated fairly? If so, the Independent Monitoring Board is looking for people from all walks of life to join them.
We encourage applications from people from minority ethnic populations, women, and people with disabilities.
We are currently looking for new volunteers to join the Independent Monitoring Board (IMB) at 12 prisons in the North West of England. The IMB helps to ensure that proper standards of care and decency are maintained. The time commitment is approximately 2 to 3 visits per month.
Closing date for applications is 22 May 2022.
Please visit the IMB website for further information and to apply. https://www.imb.org.uk/13738-2/
Before you make an application, you may wish to find out more about what it’s like to volunteer with the IMB. We are holding a virtual open event on 12 May where you can hear from members about what they do for the IMB. You can use the same link above to register for the open event.
Applicants do not need any special qualifications or experience as we will provide all necessary training and support. Candidates need to be over 18 years of age and live within approximately 30 miles of a prison. You need to be enthusiastic, open minded, possess effective communication skills and have the ability to exercise sound, objective judgement.
This is an unpaid role, however, expenses will be reimbursed.
