Applying to be a volunteer – our privacy policy

When you apply, we collect your personal information through your application form, interview or references so we can process your application.

We don’t share your information with external organisations – it’s only shared internally so that we can review your application.

What information we ask for

We only ask for information which is relevant to the role you’re applying for. We’ll collect personal details such as name, address, telephone number and email address.

On rare occasions, where it’s needed for the role, we might contact the DBS for a criminal record check. Once the DBS check is completed and you’ve received your certificate, we’d expect you to share this information with us as part of the background check process.

This information would include your name, date of birth, place of birth, gender, position applied for and anything else disclosed on your DBS check.

How we use your information

We’ll use the information you give us to decide whether or not you’ve got the right skills for the role.

Staff who access your information have had information protection training to make sure your information is handled sensitively and securely.

Storing your information

We keep your information securely on our internal systems.

You can contact us at any time and ask us:

  • what information we’ve stored about you
  • to change or update your details
  • to delete your details from our records
