Grendon-Springhill Prison

The Independent Monitoring Board is seeking volunteers to assist in its monitoring role in respect of Grendon/Springhall Prison.

The Independent Monitoring Board serving HMP Grendon/Springhill is looking to recruit additional volunteers to help ensure that proper standards of care and decency are maintained within the Prison.

We are looking to recruit enthusiastic, open minded persons from all parts of the community, including those from black and ethnic minority communities. You must be over the age of 18 years of age, and be willing to give about four days a month to this worthwhile cause.

No experience is necessary as training will be given. Ideally, you should live within 30 miles of the Prison.

Full details about the work of the IMB can be found here.
