Volunteer Probation Officer Scheme

Topic(s): Rehabilitation, MSFCare Volunteers


Started in June 1971, the Volunteer Probation Officer (VPO) Scheme augments the efforts of MSF in the rehabilitation of probationers. The VPOs complement PCRS's work by guiding probationers to make amends for the harm caused to others and to choose pathways that support them in leading resilient and fulfilling lives. Some examples of what a VPO does include: 

  • Befriend and mentor probationers;
  • Conduct time restriction checks on probationers;
  • Link probationers up with community resources, skills and strength-based activities, employment opportunities and more;
  • Share their knowledge and areas of expertise to support probationers to better navigate their own challenges (e.g. facilitate motivational or career guidance talks);
  • Plan and oversee Community Service Projects;
  • Contribute to the development of interventions/programmes.

Volunteers go through structured training to equip them with skills in working with probationers and their families.
