Ride By Your Side involves transporting and mentoring a child or young person for a 12-month period whilst their parent is in custody. It is specifically targeted to children and young people who would otherwise not be able to maintain contact with their parent and see them on a consistent basis. The Program ensures that the parent and child bond is maintained and the child is supported during a difficult time in their life.
Ride By Your Side Volunteers will be responsible for facilitating the face-to-face visit between the child and the parent in custody and also facilitating/supervising AVL (Audio Visual Link up) between child and parent from our Child & Family Centre if face-to-face contact isn’t available.
Training and supervision will be provided.
