ICVA works closely with police and crime commissioners, government, and criminal justice organisations to:
- Lead, support and represent independent custody visiting schemes in the United Kingdom, ensuring best practice is disseminated and that areas of good practice and causes for concern arising in custody are proactively shared nationally.
- Promote the wellbeing and effective care of detainees in police custody in the UK, ensuring that all detainees are treated with fairness and dignity.
- We are members of the UK National Preventive Mechanism (UKNPM) to represent monitoring of police custody as part of State duty under the Optional Protocol against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (OPCAT) – an international human rights treaty, ratified in the UK in 2003.
We are seeking three new directors – we particularly welcome applications from those with experience in:
- Equalities, Diversity and Inclusion.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
