REHABILITATION OF OFFENDERS ACT
Under the provision of this Act you must give details of any unspent offences. If you are unsure of rehabilitation periods, i.e. the time the conviction becomes unspent, you can obtain information from the Volunteer Coordinator.
All successful applicants for volunteering will be subject to a Criminal Records Bureau Disclosure, when the provisions of the Act apply, e.g. when the role entails working with children or vulnerable adults.
The disclosure of convictions will not necessarily be a bar to volunteering and only relevant convictions will be taken into consideration when deciding on whether a volunteer role will be offered.
