We welcome new members and volunteers and are currently expanding our team of visitors. If you are interested in volunteering contact us: isobel@bestsupport.org.uk


Volunteer Training
Our volunteers receive training from AVID (Association of Visitors to Immigration Detainees) before taking on someone to visit. This comprises two sessions which usually take place on a weekday evening from 18.30 to 21.00.

Visiting is arranged through the prison, and volunteers usually visit once a week or once a fortnight.
All volunteers are required to provide two character references when applying to join BEST and we encourage volunteers to attend BEST meetings: these are held in Balham Baptist Church, Ramsden Road, London SW12 8QX, on a Thursday evening at 7.15 for 7.30 pm once every two months.
