Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering for Storybook Dads means being part of a small, close-knit, friendly and dedicated team. All our staff and volunteers have to ‘muck in’ with pretty much everything!

The work is varied, interesting, challenging (sometimes frustrating due to the restrictions of working within a prison!) but always rewarding.

So whether you’re more comfortable delivering a workshop, doing admin or being a puppeteer, we like to think there’s enough going on to keep you interested! Full training will be provided as required but please don’t feel obliged to take on anything that you are uncomfortable with.

If you have any particular skills (e.g. IT, marketing, design, PR) then we can certainly use them!

Note: The Storybook Dads HQ is based in HMP Channings Wood in Devon. If you live further afield and are interested in volunteering, we can see if Storybook Dads/Mums runs in a prison local to you.
