What can you expect?
People volunteer to help with a variety of tasks, opting to help out on a regular long term basis or on a flexible or one off basis.
The pack includes an application form, an equal opportunities form and more information about our work. When we receive your completed application form, we send for references and on receipt of these, we make an appointment for you to come in for an informal chat. We then fill in the paperwork for a DBS (if the volunteering role requires this) and when this arrives back, hopefully clear, we can then arrange to see you for an induction.
The next step is to match our volunteers to the scheme they are interested in and we also pay close attention to travelling time to make the most of the volunteering experience.
We offer support and supervision, relevant training opportunities to develop your skills and interests and the reimbursement of travel expenses. All the necessary insurance and security measures are in place to make your volunteering safe.
