We have a variety of roles we can match to your interests and the amount of time you have to give. Volunteering plays a vital part in supporting our work.
We have volunteering opportunities to work within the following areas:
Women’s Mentoring: The service supports women who are serving a custodial sentence, are on remand or are subject to a Community Payback Order. Volunteers provide one-to-one mentor support including supporting women to attend appointments, personal finance and general wellbeing.
Travel Service: The service helps Edinburgh and Lothian residents with travel to Scottish prisons and the State Hospital. Our volunteer drivers assist family members with attending prison visits. A vehicle allowance will be paid.
General Volunteering: If you are interested in volunteering generally or have skills or experience you feel would benefit Sacro’s work, please still get in touch, even if none of the above opportunities suit at the moment. We also have opportunities for paid sessional work in some areas.
