WYCE VOLUNTEER APPLICATION FORM
Please make sure that you read our Volunteer Information Pack - It has lots of information to help you plan for, and get the most out of your stay. You'll also need to read through and agree to our Code of Conduct to be able to volunteer with us.
I would like to volunteer with WYCE for the following dates:
Do you have any special dietary requirements?
Do you have any allergies or medical conditions or are you taking any medications that you think we need to be aware of?
Do you have any disabilities or other condition that you may need support with whilst on the project?
All visiting volunteers must provide a current (less than 3 years old Enhanced DBS certificate (or national equivalent). This is to ensure that you do not have any impediments or previous convictions that would make you unsuitable for working alongside children or vulnerable adults. Having a criminal record, in itself, will not prevent you from being accepted as a volunteer. If you do not have a current certificate, WYCE can arrange this for you. Please advise:
Do you have a current Enhanced DBS certificate (or national equivalent)
Have you ever been convicted of a criminal offence, including spent convictions?
If yes, please send a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you have any criminal proceedings pending?
