We are so grateful for the commitment and time given by our amazing volunteers at WIP. We want to ensure that all our volunteers get as much out of the experience as they give to WIP and to do this we unfortunately do not have the capacity to offer opportunities immediately to everyone that contacts us. If you are interested in volunteering please complete the Registration of Interest Form which we will keep on file, and when an opportunity comes up we will get in touch.

Please note that this position is restricted to women only as an occupational requirement under the Equality Act 2010. WIP strongly encourages applications from women from minority ethnic groups and women with direct experience of the criminal justice system.
