    This would not necessarily prevent you from becoming a volunteer. There is more information at the top of this form about criminal records, but if you have any questions speak to Leanne McGing on 0161 203 5333. We are required to submit a Disclosure and Barring Service check (previously CRB) and will complete the form with you before you before you begin training.

    Please supply email and phone contact details of two people who know you well enough to comment about your suitability for this role – they could be employers, teachers or other people with standing in the community. They should not be family members or people with whom you’re in a relationship. If you are not sure about who to put we are happy to discuss this with you.
  • Placements

    If you plan to use your volunteering hours towards a course or placement please provide details of how many hours you need to complete and the length of the placement.
