As a Volunteer

Our passion for volunteering opens the door to profoundly rewarding experiences and an opportunity to share skills that make a lasting impact on the lives of our candidates.  

Our dedicated volunteers play a pivotal role in advancing our mission to transform lives, both within and beyond prison walls.  They actively contribute to reshaping perceptions and providing crucial support to individuals, equipping them with essential employability skills on their journey toward sustainable employment opportunities.

There are a wide variety of rewarding volunteering opportunities available with No Going Back. Share your skills and knowledge to inspire and make a difference. Whether you choose to engage directly with our candidates, collaborate with our exceptional team of case workers, or contribute behind the scenes, your commitment is invaluable. If you have a skill or passion that you think would help someone, we can match individual skills and the time you can give with the need.

There are no formal requirements needed to volunteer, we don’t expect you to be an expert as you will receive all the resources, support, and guidance you’ll need in your role.

Explore the options to run, support or facilitate our employability workshops in prisons or community settings and showcase your organisation or sector, providing guidance on essential skills such as:

  • CV writing and Online Job Applications
  • Interview Skills
  • Personal Development and Goal Setting
  • Financial Literacy
  • Building a Business Plan

These workshops typically require a morning or afternoon commitment, allowing you to tailor your involvement to suit your schedule. Alternatively, support candidates through personalised 1:1 coaching sessions, either online or in person.

If your strengths lie in administration, marketing, or fundraising, consider becoming an integral part of our back-office team. Your expertise will contribute to the seamless operation of our organisation. We normally ask for a commitment of at least 2 days per week, over 3 – 6 months, this is negotiable.

Explore the option of offering Pro Bono assistance, financial support, or in-kind contributions to further enhance our services. Whether your skills encompass strategy, sales, marketing, technology, customer service, or beyond, this is an opportunity for you to share your knowledge and aid in our team’s development.

Additionally, you can assist by providing venues for hosting workshops and training events or contributing donations. Your involvement in any capacity fuels our mission to create positive change in the lives of those we serve.
