Our policy on convictions: we only carry out Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) checks for roles working directly with clients in services targeted at vulnerable adults or children. 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 conviction for a sexual offence against a child or vulnerable adult is considered unsuitable to volunteer.
Entitlement to work or volunteer: if you are from outside the EU/EEA, it’s important you check that 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.
Citizens Advice is committed to valuing diversity and promoting equality. We encourage and welcome applications from all people, whatever their background, who are interested in applying to be volunteers regardless of age, disability, gender re-assignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.
