Bristol
In Bristol, we have opportunities for volunteers to become part of Pact's Basic Caring Community (BaCC) Group. Basic Caring Communities are groups of volunteers, motivated by their Christian faith, who offer daily support to an ex-prisoner, helping him or her to find their feet in the community in the first crucial months after release.
 
As a support group member you will be trained to support an ex-offender (male or female) to re-integrate into the local community for an agreed period of time. You will be expected to commit for a minimum of 6 months and contribute a minimum of 4 hours per week to the role. Click here to find out more about BaCC.
