The training course will also provide time for discussion concerning:

  • The reasons behind volunteers’ desire to work in prisons
  • Any worries volunteers may have prior to embarking on prison work
  • The structure and purpose of the criminal justice system
  • The prison environment, its population and what to expect
  • The need to reduce reoffending and approaches to doing this
  • Safe and responsible working practice
  • What can be expected from your first month in prison work

Two free places will be offered to those with lived experience of the criminal justice system, or those from black, Asian or minority communities. Please contact for more information.

There is also the option to have the training delivered onsite at your organisation. For any queries regarding the Liverpool event or onsite training, please contact
