The Safer Living Foundation endeavours to (i) protect society from sexual crime (ii) prevent further victims of sexual abuse and (iii) rehabilitate perpetrators of sexual crime.

As a volunteer with the Safer Living Foundation, you would be involved in a project which supports an adult or young person who has a sexual conviction or who has shown harmful sexual behaviour.

We are recruiting support volunteers across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire to work with adults and young people convicted of sexual offences or who have shown harmful sexual behaviour. Volunteers are from all walks of life and all ages. They are emotionally stable and approachable people who have a mature outlook. They combine an empathic approach with the ability to maintain firm boundaries.

Please see our website for up to date details of the projects we are currently running that you can get involved with www.saferlivingfoundation.org/how-can-you-help-2/applying-to-volunteer/


All volunteers are required to attend an initial Core 2 day training programme which will equip them to begin volunteering with us. In addition, there may be extra training for your specific project i.e. young people.


All the individuals volunteers work with are thoroughly risk assessed.
Volunteers will also have a DBS records check paid for by the Safer Living Foundation and will need to produce two satisfactory references.

All expenses incurred by volunteers will be reimbursed including travel.
