Application Form for Volunteers

Thank you for applying to be a volunteer at the Carers’ Support Service. As part of our process of Volunteer recruitment we need to ask you for some information about yourself. We try to keep any form filling and information requests to a minimum but you should be aware that information you provide would be held on our database. In common with many organisations that use the services of Volunteers we need to take up references. We will also complete a DBS for you depending on which volunteer role / placement you are applying for. This is to enable us to comply with legislation and good practice. Any information that you provide is treated in the strictest confidence.

Any amount of time you give is valuable to us, be it an hour or two every now and then or a regular commitment – (we would welcome the opportunity to discuss and tailor your volunteering in person).

Please note that a criminal record will not necessarily prevent you from working as a volunteer. However, because of the vulnerability of some of the people with whom we work, we reserve the right to conduct checks as deemed necessary.

We ask that all volunteers give the names of two referees who are not related to them. You need to have known them for over 12 months
