Are you interested in being a Mentor?

To become a volunteer with CCN you will need to:

  • Have some relevant experience.
  • Be over 25 years old.
  • Understand and accept the interdenominational ethos of CCN.
  • Be able to work with offenders in a non-judgemental, authoritative but friendly manner.
  • Have excellent listening & communication skills.
  • Be well organised, reliable and resourceful.
  • Be able to work independently and also as part of a team.
  • Have basic computer skills.

Volunteers are required to attend a series of training sessions before being accepted as mentors.

Training Course for Volunteer Mentors.

The next course will be in the Autumn but if you are interested in being a mentor do contact us ASAP since if there is sufficient interest we may arrange a course sooner.

To be held at: St Stephen’s Church, 2, Rampant Horse Street, Norwich NR2 1QP

 The training course has been produced by the Community Chaplaincy Association. This is a national body that brings together best practice and makes it available to local Community Chaplaincy projects.

All our volunteers are required to do the training so that they understand the aims of the project and what would be required of a mentor. Completing the training does not commit you to becoming a mentor nor does it commit us to accepting you on the project.

If these dates and times are not suitable please still get in touch and we will see what we can do.


Paula Callam, also volunteering as a mentor, is an experienced trainer having spent six and half years in Antigua training Street Pastors and assisting in running the Street Pastors Project on the island.

Susan Carne Project Manager for CCN is a minister in the Assemblies of God Church, and has worked as a volunteer chaplain in Wayland prison.
