Apply to Volunteer

The form is in 5 short sections, please fill them all in.

Please tell us as much as you can about yourself and your reasons for volunteering.

Don't worry if you're not sure which service to pick, we can discuss it when we meet. More info on volunteer roles here

As you will understand, we need to screen our volunteers carefully so we ask you to provide three referees and sign a disclosure of offences, and we'll help you to apply for a free PVG membership (sometimes called a Police Check). Criminal convictions will not usually stop you from volunteering with us, but we will want to discuss it.

It saves us money if you can give us email contacts for your referees as well as postal addresses.

References

Please give names and addresses of three referees who might comment on your suitability to volunteer with Home Link Family Support. One reference should come from a formal setting e.g. work, study, voluntary work; two from personal or less formal individuals e.g. a friend or neighbour who has known you for some time. The two personal references should know you from different settings e.g. one from a community group and one friend, etc.

Unfortunately we cannot accept a reference from a relative. (Please give us email and postal contacts where possible as emails save us money!)

Reference C
Disclosure of Offences

Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (exceptions) Order 1975

Because of the nature of the work for which you are applying, this post is exempt from the provision of Section 4 (ii) of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 by virtue of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order, 1975 and you are therefore not entitled to withhold information about convictions which for other purposes are “spent” under the provisions of the Act and, in the event of employment as a Befriender, any failure to disclose such convictions could result in dismissal or disciplinary action by Home Link.

A criminal record should not necessarily prevent you from volunteering with Home Link Family Support, but we will want to discuss it with you.
