Prison Advice and Care Trust (Pact)

Trustee (Voluntary)

Pact is governed by a group of individual volunteers who act as the trustees of the charity. Pact is now seeking to strengthen its Board.

Pact is particularly keen to hear from women, and from people from diverse heritages, as well as from people with lived experience of the justice system. An interest or expertise in areas such as social work, fundraising, health & safety, policy or organisational development, would be a bonus.

The Board meets 6 times a year in the evenings in London, and trustees are also expected to attend some Pact events, visit projects , and provide occasional advice to the senior team between meetings. This is a voluntary role but expenses are claimable.

Pact is a charity with a Catholic heritage and a mission based on Catholic Social Teaching. Pact believes in the innate dignity of the human person, and that a Fresh Start is possible for everyone. Trustees, volunteers and staff are a diverse group who share the charity’s mission, vision and values.
