At Sova Support Link we train and support volunteers to become volunteer mentors for offenders who have struggled to achieve in the community and suffered for Life Long Psychological needs. 

Important Note:

Sova will be merging with our parent organisation, Change, Grow, Live (CGL) before the end of March 2019. Therefore whilst your application to be a volunteer may initially be processed by Sova, due to the merger timetable you may have your volunteer application approved and processed by CGL.  All details regarding the role of volunteer and the terms offered by Sova however will be maintained therefore the terms you have applied for in relation to this advert will remain post merger. During the recruitment process you will be offered the opportunity to consent to becoming a volunteer with CGL in line with the change of employer name.

Commitment: 5 hours per week 

Opportunity detail :

Sova Support Link delivers Help until Better (HUB) volunteering – this model provides support based on the needs of the client as they transition and move on from intensive interventions and seek to integrate back into the community. This psychologically informed support is appropriate in the context of high risk, high harm personality disordered offenders and those with personality difficulties, helping clients achieve agreed goals and a planned exit from the service.

As our service users have complex needs and can on occasions demonstrate challenging behaviour you would be required to attend regular supervision and support groups alongside other volunteers with Sova Staff to ensure you have the support needed to carry out your role.
