Having secured funding from the Ministry of Justice and Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS), Volunteering Matters is looking for expressions of interest from organisations to deliver a telephone befriending service to individuals currently serving their sentences in the community either on a community sentence order or on a period of license. Volunteers would support the most vulnerable via telephone calls to help those feeling isolated during the pandemic. There’s a range of areas across England which need cover. Telephones will be supplied by HMPPS. The grant funding for this project is up to £15,000 for five months. Contact email@example.com for more information.
