Role overview

The Mentoring Co-ordinator will be responsible for recruiting, training and vetting a small pool of volunteers dedicated to this
service. Supported by our national volunteering infrastructure and resources, this post will ensure Volunteer Mentors are

role will also carry a small caseload supporting 10 POP.

The Mentoring Coordinator will manage around 5-10 volunteers and ensure there is a high-quality mentoring support system in place
for men and women on probation. People on probation will be supported by the volunteer mentors to create a holistic action plan

structured interventions. The support will include approximately 10 sessions.
