The DGRSP considers the collaboration of volunteers in the prison environment as an aspect with an important role in the process of preparing inmates for their release, not only by opening up prison establishments to the participation of the community in the execution of sentences and measures depriving them of their freedom but also because of the impact that volunteers can have on the outside (DGRSP,2016).
The Final Conference of the Volpris Initiative “Prisons Managing Volunteers in EU”, organized by the General Directorate of Reintegration and Prison Services (DGRSP) and Aproximar, Cooperative of Social Solidarity, is taking place today in Portugal.
This conference is to present the new Resources for Capacity Building for Prison Volunteering Organisations, as well as to explore opportunities for collaboration and replication.
