The Personal Support Unit (PSU)
One of your NARPO members, Mr Graham Barlow (Oldham Branch), is a volunteer with PSU. He suggested I write to NARPO to see if other retired officers might be interested in volunteering with PSU in Liverpool.
PSU is a national charity that supports Litigants in Person at the Civil and Family Courts. Specific knowledge of civil and family law is not necessary but good people skills are as is a general awareness of the court environment. Volunteers might offer a range of support, but not Legal Advice. Often, we give legal information and common-sense advice, or help with forms and statements. Graham is a real asset to Liverpool and I am sure your members would bring much experience to the volunteer role.
If you would be willing to advertise this volunteering opportunity I would be very grateful. Our volunteers include, retired people including former Magistrates, Probation officers, Social Workers, Teachers, Housing directors and business people – not forgetting Graham as a retired Police Officer.
If you referred your members to the PSU web site www.thepsu.org.uk that would give all the information of what we do and a means of enquiring further. Volunteering opportunities exist in Liverpool and Chester.
I do hope you can help
