Hello, and thank you for thinking about volunteering with Pact. We hope you will find it an enjoyable and rewarding experience. As a volunteer, you are extremely important to us. 

At Pact we believe in the unique dignity of every human being. We are an inclusive, welcoming organisation, with a diverse workforce of people who share our core values. We welcome applications from people from all sectors of our diverse communities and all backgrounds, including people who have been affected by imprisonment (appointment to post is subject to a risk assessment). For roles requiring prison vetting or criminal records checks through the DBS, information about this is provided on the job description or role profile. (For more information about Pact's approach to recruiting people with convictions and cautions and Pact's policy on handling DBS certificate information).

Mission Statement

The Prison Advice and Care Trust (Pact) is a national charity which supports prisoners and their families to make a fresh start.

Our Vision

Our vision is of a society in which justice is understood as a process of restoration and healing, in which prisons are used sparingly and as places of learning and rehabilitation, and in which the innate dignity and worth of every human being is valued.

Our Mission

Our mission is to support prisoners and their families to make a fresh start, and to minimise the harm that can be caused by imprisonment on people who have committed offences, on families and on communities.
