Volunteer Mentor – Visiting Mum - Tenby
Would you like to be part of a simple and unique project that aims to benefit imprisoned mothers from South Wales held at HMP Eastwood Park and their children still living across the region?
Many of the children of imprisoned mothers are prevented from maintaining contact with their parent. The two biggest factors for this are the cost of travel and the lack of an adult to take the children to visit their parent whilst they are in prison.
Volunteer mentors will:
· support the children to maintain and build positive relationships with their mother during their time in
· work with children and their carers in their homes.
· offer wrap around emotional support children need and prepare them for visits.
Sova will offer you FREE accredited course in mentoring, first aid, hidden sentence, safeguarding and regular support, and pay your expenses.
You will need to have a clean driving licence, have access to your own car, and commit to 10 hours a month over 6 to 12 months.
Time commitment: 2-4 hours per month
