Applying to Volunteer


We ask all of our potential volunteers to go through the same basic application process:
  • Complete our Application Form either online or by downloading the form here.
  • We will send off for two character references. If these are satisfactory...
  • We will ask you to complete a PVG application (similar to the Disclosure previously used) which checks if you have any history that might make it unsuitable for you to work with vulnerable adults.


Once all of the above stages have been completed, we will invite you to attend our in-house Induction Training. This will provide you with an overview of our organisation and give you a grounding in;- Protection of Vulnerable Adults, Boundaries in Befriending, Endings and other Organisational Policies.


Following your Induction Training you will meet with the Volunteer Coordinator to discuss an appropriate role for you within the organisation. You will be fully supported by us during any volunteering that you choose to undertake and will receive regular Supervision sessions as well as access to our annual training opportunities.
