Volunteers will promote the services NEPACS offers within courts and support families by listening and offering information and advice when someone close to them is sentenced or remanded in custody. The project is particularly focused towards families who are first time prison visitors or unfamiliar with court proceedings. Volunteers will provide advice and written information to families concerning the next steps such as visiting prison. This will provide experience of being in a court setting.
