Overview

The Apollo Project

We are looking for volunteers to work with young people who have problematic sexual behaviour living in Nottingham.

DO SOMETHING AMAZING…
VOLUNTEER WITH US AND HELP PREVENT SEXUAL ABUSE

The Safer Living Foundation is a joint venture between HMP Whatton, Nottingham Trent University, the National Probation Service, and Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire Police. The charity adopts a multi-agency approach; with a strong research and evaluation component, it is focused on reducing sexual (re)offending through preventative and rehabilitative initiatives. This rehabilitative initiative is called the Apollo Project.

The Apollo Project aims to prevent sexual offending and reduce reoffending by working with young people of all genders under 18 years of age who have shown sexually harmful behaviour.

A team of specially trained volunteers provide community-based support to help to the young person develop the skills to live a rich, healthy life focussed on their values and free from offending.  They will receive practical and social support and coaching to help them develop better emotional regulation and prepare them for life as an independent adult.

What are we looking for?

The Safer Living Foundation are recruiting  volunteers across Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire to work with young people who have displayed sexually harmful behaviour. Volunteers are from all walks of life and all ages. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age. If you are looking for a challenging but exciting volunteering opportunity where you can make a real difference to the community then this could be the opportunity for you.
