I decided to get involved in volunteering for HMP Exeter. From day one everyone has made me feel welcome. The team are fantastic in what they do, and really care about their clients. I have learned plenty of new skills, and gained lots of knowledge throughout the past year, and different experiences.

The service that they provide is a very valuable one, offering support, guidance and clinical observations, undertaking assessments and aiming to help each individual client, respective of their own different needs. They truly want the best for each person that they see, and aim to help them in anyway that they can. I have loved my time here, and would recommend volunteering here to others, it certainly is a valuable and rewarding experience.
