PCCs celebrate the dedication and selflessness of Independent Custody Visitors this Volunteers’ Week. Click the link above for the full press release.
Sherry Ralph, ICVA CEO, on ICVs: “As the national association responsible for the ICV schemes, we regularly receive reports of where independent custody visiting volunteers have made positive changes to custody and where issues in detainee care and wellbeing have been highlighted and remedied.
These reports show the validity and necessity of the custody visiting model and the tireless commitment by the volunteers. The hard work and dedication to detainee rights, entitlements and wellbeing is admirable and the coverage the volunteers provide is vast. The Board and I are very proud to represent Independent Custody Visitors this Volunteers’ Week and every week.”
