Volunteering

Member – Volunteers needed on Independent Monitoring Boards (IMB) at HMP East Sutton Park

Location: Maidstone, Kent

Date Posted: 30/07/2019

Closing Date: 22/09/2019

Vacancy Description

We are currently looking for new volunteers to join IMB East Sutton Park helping to ensure that proper standards of care and decency are maintained.

 

Person Specification

Applicants do not need any special qualifications or experience as we will provide all necessary training and support. Candidates need to be over 18 years of age and live within approx. 20 miles of the prison. You need to be enthusiastic, open minded, possess effective communication skills and have the ability to exercise sound, objective judgement.

Additional Information

HMP/YOI East Sutton Park is a women’s open prison located at East Sutton, 7 miles from Maidstone. The prison is not reachable by public transport and is in an old house which is unsuitable for wheelchairs. Inside every prison, there is an IMB – a group of ordinary members of the public doing an extraordinary job. IMB members are independent, unpaid and work an average of 4 visits per month depending on the needs of the Board and the individual. Members are the eyes and ears of Ministers and monitor the day-to-day life in their local prison to ensure that proper standards of care and decency are maintained. Your background can be as a student, a person of working age or retired. We welcome applications from people over 18 and are particularly keen to hear from those of working age and individuals from black and minority ethnic communities, since these groups are under-represented on the existing Boards. The role is about fairness and decency and is always rewarding, educational and challenging. Please click on www.imb.org.uk to find out how being an IMB member can benefit you. Visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuQ4WxirPlg and view the short film ‘Joining the Independent Monitoring Board’ and hear current IMB members talking about their role.

How to Apply

An application pack along with further details on how to apply is available from http://www.imb.org.uk/join-now/current-vacancies/.Completed applications should be emailed to IMBrecruitment@justice.gsi.gov.uk by the closing date. Alternatively, please telephone 020 3334 3265 providing your name and address and we will post one to you. Completed applications should be posted to IMB Secretariat, Third Floor Post Point 2, 10 South Colonnade, Canary Wharf, London, E14 4PU by the closing date

Reference Number:  981/East Sutton Park/2019 (to be quoted in all correspondence and on application form)
