There are several different ways that you can volunteer-there are roles to suit most people either outside of and within the prison.

To work within the prison you must be 18 years old and over and there is limited disabled access to the prison.

We use the following recruitment process:
Application Form , Informal Discussion, Interviews, References, Trial Period.

Due to the nature of the work that we do all volunteers will be required to undergo a DBS check and security clearance and their names will be submitted for approval before the directors of FOPP and HMP Peterborough.

Insurance cover,initial training and ongoing support are provided to all volunteers together with an information handbook containing all of our policies and details of how to claim any travel expenses.
