Before starting your placement you will be asked to attend one day Induction Course and one day Mandatory Training which is a statutory requirement for all volunteers.
All volunteer applicants will be required to disclose any previous criminal convictions, cautions or warnings received as required under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (1974) through the DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) process.

This information will be treated in confidence and will not necessarily prejudice an applicant being accepted for a voluntary placement.
All applicants will also require a National Insurance Number in order to complete a DBS submission.
