Open Road is looking for volunteer mentors to support offenders in probation to re-engage with the Kings Lynn (and surrounding area) community and support their self esteem/confidence.
Mentoring is all about supporting the offender to move forward from their conviction and lead a offending free life, this can be done by supporting the offender to access services like the Job Centre or Doctors or just have a coffee and chat to put the world to rights. We ask for as little as 1 hour per week during the working week (no weekends or evenings) to meet with an offender.
In return, Open Road offers mentors:
- Full training ran in local area
- Expenses including refreshments during meetings with offenders
- Mobile to use to contact offender
- On-going training and support
- Local based meetings, eg in Kings Lynn town centre so driving/access to car not a requirement for role
