Criminal Records (Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974)

We need to ask you about any spent or unspent convictions as part of our duty of care.  A criminal conviction will not necessarily prevent you from becoming a volunteer; the decision will depend on the type of offence and its relevance to the volunteering role.  Some roles will also require full criminal record checks.

If you do have any spent or unspent convictions please send details in an email us.
