Rushcliffe CVS manages and runs the Visitors Centre at HMP Whatton on behalf of the Prison Service. The centre is designed to provide a welcoming place for friends and families of prisoners to spend time and relax before and after their visit. The centre provides a safe, pleasant environment where all visitors are treated with dignity and respect, provided with the facilities they need and offered information, support and the opportunity to discuss in confidence any difficulties they may face.
The volunteer role is to provide a meet and greet service, complete the booking in process and provide support and assistance to visitors. Volunteers must enjoy meeting people, be non-judgemental, sensitive, caring and discreet.
It is envisaged that volunteers are available on a rota basis, to help out at the busiest time of day which is currently between 12.30pm – 2.30pm. The Centre is open Thursday to Monday.
For further information about the Visitor Centre telephone 01949 803564 or visit the webpage here.
