Due to recent changes in PACE Code C, the demand for our Appropriate Adult service has increased dramatically. We are now urgently looking for volunteers to join our team.
At YLF we are very proud of our Appropriate Adult service and our team of volunteers who are well respected and recognised for their professionalism and dedication, delivering over 10,000 voluntary hours a year across Kent and Medway.
In 2015 our volunteers were recognised for their outstanding contribution when they received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
If you would like to join us to support and safeguard juveniles and vulnerable adults in custody when they are suspected of a criminal offence, ensuring that they are able to participate effectively and are treated in a fair and just manner we would love to hear from you.
We are particularly looking for volunteers who;
- Can offer a minimum of 4-8 hours a week on a regular basis
- Have a genuine passion for helping vulnerable people
- Have excellent active listening and communication skills
- Excellent timekeeping
- Are personable and approachable
