Volunteer Helper

We are delighted that you are thinking about becoming a volunteer “helper” at the Eric Liddell Centre. In order to take your offer of assistance forward the Centre needs some basic information about you, the abilities and personal experience that you have and how you hope to make use of them at the Centre. Some of the information that we ask you for helps us to decide if there is additional training that you will need to support you in your role and of course some helps us to deal with our legal obligations such as insurance or disclosure of criminal convictions.

When you have completed this short form, we will take up references and arrange a meeting with you to talk through your offer of help and hear what you hope to gain from it. If you are interested in helping in our registered daycare service, it will be at this time that we would help you to complete an enhanced disclosure application form.

Disclosure of Offences
(Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 {Exceptions} Order 1975)

Because of the nature of the volunteering role for which you are applying, this post is exempt from the provisions of Section 4 (ii) of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 by virtue of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions) Order 1975 as amended by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) (Amendments) Order 1986. You are therefore not entitled to withhold information about convictions which for other purposes are “spent” under the provisions of the Act.

It is an offence for an individual to do, or to seek or agree to do any regulated work for which the individual is barred.

Have you ever been convicted of a criminal offence, barred from doing any regulated work or are you at present the subject of criminal charges?
If yes to any of the above please provide details:-
