Members for Independent Monitoring Boards throughout England and Wales

Posted for Independent Monitoring Boards

Back to Search Results Register your Interest

We are currently looking for new members to join the Independent Monitoring Board (IMB) at most prisons across England and Wales.  A full list of locations is provided below.  The IMB helps to ensure that proper standards of care and decency are maintained. Applicants do not need any special qualifications or experience as we will provide all necessary training and support. Candidates need to be over 18 years of age and live within a reasonable distance of the prison (up to one hour travel time). You need to be enthusiastic, open minded, possess effective communication skills and have the ability to exercise sound, objective judgement.  


We encourage applications from people from minority ethnic communities, young people, those of working age, and people with disabilities, as these groups are under-represented on our existing Boards. 

This is an unpaid, voluntary role, but we pay your travel expenses and in certain circumstances, some loss of earnings and childcare/carer costs. 

The time commitment is approximately 2 to 3 visits per month, although this will be higher in the first year as members go through induction into the role. 

Closing date for applications is 7 May 2023.
