    Declaration of Criminal Record

    As an organisation committed to equality and diversity, Being There recognise the contribution that all people can make as volunteers and so we welcome enquiries of interest from everyone. We recognise too that some potential volunteers have criminal records and are reluctant to apply for voluntary work where this would involve the disclosure of their record. We understand that people are often may fear they will not be treated fairly because of them.

    Please rest assured that we will handle any information provided below in confidence. Should you disclose them, we will not take into account convictions deemed spent under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, unless the voluntary position is exempt from the Act.

    Some of our volunteer positions are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act. As such, we will ask for disclosure of both spent and unspent convictions, and also cautions, reprimands, and final warnings. Where appropriate to the role, we will also ask you to agree to a Disclosure and Barring Service check. If the DBS check reveals information that we were not previously aware of, we will discuss the matter with you before making a final decision. Whilst it is unlikely that a Criminal Record would prevent you from volunteering, we consider each case on an individual basis.
