Our policy on convictions

Having a criminal record is not in itself a barrier to volunteering, and we will only take relevant convictions or sexual offences into account. Our policy is in place to make sure ex-offenders are treated fairly. We consider each offence individually, looking at issues like risk to the client, how long ago it took place, the circumstances and whether they are relevant to the volunteer role.

Anyone with a caution or conviction for a sexual offence against a child or vulnerable adult is considered unsuitable to volunteer.

 

Please answer the question below:

Have you had any previous convictions not regarded as spent under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974?

If you are concerned about this and would like to discuss your individual circumstances further, please contact Karen Hoy at hoyk@citizensadviceeastherts.org.uk

Entitlement to work or volunteer

If you are not a UK or Irish citizen, it’s important you check you are permitted to volunteer or carry out ‘unpaid work’ in addition to your main reason for entering the country, to avoid jeopardising your visa status. 

 

If you cannot find the answer clearly on your immigration documentation, contact the UK Border Agency (www.gov.uk/contact-ukvi-inside-outside-uk)

EU/EEA nationals from other countries are entitled to volunteer if they have one of the following statuses to volunteer:

• Pre-settled status

• Settled status

• A visa status that allows volunteering (as outlined on the NCVO website: knowhow.ncvo.org.uk/your-team/volunteers/recruiting/volunteers-from-overseas)
