Message from Wendy Sinclair-Gieben,
Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Prisons for Scotland

Could you provide invaluable support by ensuring prisoners’ human rights are upheld and that life in prison contributes to their rehabilitation?

You may be the person who can make a unique contribution to improving Scotland’s prisons, listening to and supporting prisoners and positively impacting on their lives and your wider local community.

Becoming an Independent Prison Monitor can be challenging and rewarding. As well as the opportunity to participate in one of the most unusual and valuable types of voluntary work, you will have the opportunity to meet and work with many people from diverse backgrounds and walks of life.

I would be delighted if you would consider joining our Independent Monitoring Team and in doing so be part of bringing the communities in Scotland into Scotland’s prisons. Further information on the role and an application form can be found on our website or by clicking on the following link.
