All our volunteers undertake Criminal Records Bureau checks; there is no charge for this.

It will also give us the opportunity to get to know you, which is important when matching you with a client.

Please be aware that the whole process may take several weeks, and you cannot be put in touch with clients until the Criminal Records Bureau Check has been completedThis is to safeguard the client and the organisation.

We look forward to hearing from you.
