The service is intended to be remote (video calls) however some members may ask for in-person support. You do not have to offer this support and we will pay agreed travel expenses.
If you are willing to offer in-person support, how would you travel to visit service users? If you do not wish to offer in-person support, you do not have to answer this question.
Please be aware that some of our volunteering roles require a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). Some criminal offences will not bar you from volunteering with us and we will decide on an individual basis.
However, offences including any form of violence, theft or blackmail will automatically disqualify you from volunteering to support vulnerable adults or children.
Please include 2 references that we can contact after your informal assessment.
One of your references should be someone who knows you in a professional capacity, such as work, volunteering or education.
This must be completed if you would like to support people in-person.
Self Help Nottingham and Deaf Cancer Support aims to be open and inclusive to all. We welcome diversity in our team and will make all reasonable adjustments to support anyone volunteering with us. We will try to provide access, equipment, or other practical support to ensure that our volunteering opportunities are accessible as possible. We work within the Equalities Act 2010 and welcome volunteers from all backgrounds and circumstances.
The questions below are for us to monitor the diversity of our volunteering team to ensure that we are representing the communities we work in. You are under no obligation to complete the questions, but it would help us to continue working to make our service accessible to as many people as possible.
