Step 1 - A bit about you
Step 2 - References, Skills and Qualifications

References:
Due to the nature of the work we do you may come into contact with vulnerable adults. As such we have to ask for and take-up references. Please give details of a person who you have known, ideally in a professional capacity, for at least one year and who is happy to give you a reference. As this will involve us contacting your referee by telephone for a short conversation, please make sure you have the permission of the person you have noted as a reference for us to get in touch, also, to speed up this process please ensure you give us their preferred daytime telephone number.

Freedom Community Alliance is a Christian charity and volunteers will need to demonstrate an open and accepting attitude towards the Christian ethos of the charity.

Step 3 - A little more about you

Please note: Due to our work with vulnerable adults Freedom Community Alliance is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (ROA) 1974. This means that potential volunteers are required to declare their entire criminal record, including cautions, reprimands, final warnings and criminal convictions categorised as `spent’ under the above legislation. Some volunteer roles require a DBS check. Having a conviction will not necessarily stop you from volunteering, but will need to be taken into consideration when assessing your suitability.

By clicking send you agree to Freedom processing this application for a volunteer position with us. This includes contacting the person you have identified as a referee and completing any relevant checks such as DBS checks if required for the position you are interested in.
