Volunteers at the Day Centre are covered by the Rehabilitaion of Offenders Act 1974 (Exemptions) (Amendment) Order 1986. This means that you have to declare any convictions you may have even if they would be regarded as "spent". You may be required to obtain a DBS check. Having a conviction or caution does not necessarily affect your application to volunteer.
If your application is successful you will be invited to an information session - usually held on the 1st Wednesday of the month at 11am. Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us.
During the current COVID-19 crisis we have decided not to recruit any new volunteers. We are continuing to provide basic services to our clients at the Centre and don’t want to put more people at risk. We are doing this to protect our clients, staff and existing volunteers.
When we get through this we will contact all those who apply to volunteer to see if they are still interested.
