Women in Prison (WIP) is a unique, women-only organisation that provides gender-specialist support to women affected by the criminal justice system and campaigns for systems change.

We are so grateful for the commitment and time given by our amazing volunteers at WIP. Across the organisation volunteers support WIP staff with office and finance admin, running workshops, counselling and mentoring, fundraising, research and policy, campaigning and so much more!

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.

We ask that everyone wishing to volunteer with us fills out an application form (below), which we will keep on file, and when an opportunity comes up we will get in touch. Volunteering at WIP may not be about a weekly commitment based in our office instead it could be about you running a one-off session to share a particular skill with women we support or helping to spread the word about the campaign by linking us in with another organisation you are involved in - so keep this in mind when completing the application form.

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.
