Working together to build better futures
Welcome to our volunteering page, where you can apply to volunteer at one of our locations across the UK and find out more about our opportunities through our FAQs. If you are a returning volunteer, you can also access your MyImpact account at the bottom of the page.
At Interventions Alliance, we work with participants to improve areas of their lives they have identified as problematic. This could be:
- Supporting a participant to improve their overall emotional wellbeing;
- Mentoring them in an effective way that assists them in building new social networks that can support desistance from offending;
- Assisting individuals with the skills and confidence to find and manage their homes; and
- Helping a person on the path to employment by developing the right skills and acquiring the right training.

To become a volunteer you must first complete the online application and provide us with 2 references. You will then be invited to an interview. Once you have passed the interview process you will be invited to training at one of our offices in Kent, Surrey or Sussex. Training is generally run in each county 4 times a year and is on 3 consecutive days 10am – 4pm.
Once you are trained we shall request a DBS for you and ask you to complete some online training around mental health and safeguarding. You are then ready to mentor.
We ask that volunteers are available for 6 months and usually this is for 2 hours per week. However, cases do vary.
Your expenses are covered from training? This includes being able to claim back up to £6 for buying a tea or coffee with your mentee each week.
Volunteers don’t have to be experts but must have a belief in change, a desire to support that change and be pragmatic, creative and resilient in their approach. Many of the skills you would learn and develop while being a mentor.
Once training as a volunteer you will have access to all the professional training the probation staff attend. This allows you to have professional and up-to-date training as well as giving you the opportunity to network with probation staff. Some of the courses are as follows.
- Mental health awareness
- Autism awareness
- Sex offender awareness
- Domestic violence
- Substance misuse
- Much much more.
