We have nearly 1,700 authorised volunteers actively working with offenders on a regular basis.

Volunteering within Corrections supports our goal of reducing re-offending, by assisting offenders to meet their rehabilitative needs and transition back into society (reintegration).

Volunteers also support and complement our services and constructive activities, for example in music, health and wellbeing, cultural and religious services, reading and writing, parenting/life skills or supporting other rehabilitation and reintegration programmes we have to offer.
