Volunteering Opportunities

The Merseyside Offender Mentoring Project, managed by Sefton Council for Voluntary Service (CVS) has been successfully supporting ex offenders across Merseyside for over 5 years. In May 2015, the project was awarded the ‘Queen’s Award for Voluntary Services’ for the outstanding results as we have achieved, and we continue to exceed expectations.

The project has now expanded and we are currently recruiting Volunteer Mentors to support vulnerable children and young people in the age range of 8-18 within St Helens area.

The children are involved with the youth justice system and the project aims to deliver a bespoke mentoring service which will respond to the needs of those individuals. These needs include employment, addiction, family and relationships, housing, health & well being, attitude, thinking & behaviour, education and training.

This service supports and enables children and young people to develop skills and move forward with the guidance of their mentor. We empower young people by enabling them to make informed decisions on their future, support them to engage in activities within the community and follow action plans to reduce re-offending.

  • Do you have any spare time (a minimum of 1hour pw)?
  • Need voluntary experience?
  • Or do you want to help inspire children/young people?

Then this post could be for you. If you are 21+ (18+ considered depending on life experience) then come and join our rewarding team. This post includes out of pocket expenses. Please contact:
