Volunteer Sign-Up

Volunteer Confidential Declaration and Sign-Up.

Thank you for your interest joining the Eccleshall Cares team! It's a wonderful, rewarding way to support the vulnerable and isolated in our community. Before completeing the below form, you MUST read and fully understand our terms and conditions which include some essential operating principles HERE.

Please do not fill out the form below until you have read the terms and conditions, and you fully understand what you are signing up to.

You can find further information on DBS declaration filtering and other rules governing the DBS service HERE.

Declare all convictions, cautions, warnings, and reprimands etc. that are not subject to the DBS filtering rules. Please also provide details of the circumstances and/or reasons that led to the offence(s).

Broadly, where your position / role involves substantial contact with children and / or adults experiencing, or at risk of abuse or neglect (i.e. where you are eligible for an enhanced criminal records check) you will be expected to declare all convictions and / or cautions etc., even if they are ‘spent’ provided they have not been filtered by the DBS filtering rules.

At present Eccleshall Cares is an entirely non-contact initiative. However, this may change in the future, so for the purposes of this application we would strongly advise assuming that you may at some point in the future come into contact with 'at-risk' people.
