Volunteering Vacancies


Independent Custody Visitor Vacancies

Independent custody visiting is the well established system whereby volunteers attend police stations to check on the treatment of detainees and the conditions in which they are held and that their rights and entitlements are being observed. It offers protections to both detainees and the police and reassurance to the community at large.

We currently have vacancies within the Sunderland/South Tyneside Custody Visiting Panel.

PLEASE NOTE: Those applying for the role must live in the area that they are visiting.
