How you hear about us

All volunteer roles that involve direct support to our clients are subject to an enhanced DBS check. If you have any unspent convictions, let us know below. Any convictions do not necessarily exclude you from volunteering with us and we assess this on a case-by-case basis once the DBS check is returned

To protect the reputation of Shaw Trust, its employees and agents from accusations of bias, partiality or favouritism and comply with the Bribery Act 2010 and Charities Act 1993, we ask all volunteers to declare any relationship or prior engagement with Shaw Trust. This could include family members working for Shaw Trust, prior contractual engagement with us or a professional connection.

This does not exclude you from volunteering with us, but in the interests of openness, we ask you to declare the details as per our 'declaration of interest' policy.
