Since 2015 we have held a Post-release Assistance Centre where prisoners released from prisons or remand centers can obtain psychological support, legal aid, help in finding a job, raising professional qualifications, emergency aid. In July 2018 the Volunteer Centre Association founded a house for ex-prisoners.
Participation in the Volpris project is an opportunity for the Volunteer Center to further develop volunteering in prisons. We can share our experience, learn how volunteering works in prisons in other countries and work together to optimize this model and support the prison service.
The European event "How did volunteering shape prison life in 2020?" is happening!! We are glad to see participants from different countries together for volunteering.
Thank you for join us!
«This paper, produced by the Reducing Reoffending Third Sector Advisory Group (RR3), sets out how the government and the voluntary sector can best work together to respond to the challenges posed to the long-term delivery of voluntary sector services in the context of Covid-19.»
