Cautions, Rehabilitation and Criminal Records

Please give details of any criminal convictions. If none, please state.

Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, (Exemptions) Order 1975

For certain volunteering roles which involve contact with vulnerable people, including children or patients of Hospice of the Valleys, you are not entitled to withhold information about convictions which are for other purposes 'spent' under the provisions of the Act. Successful applicants will be required to complete a Disclosure Application at Enhanced level for submission to the Criminal Records Bureau. Hospice of the Valleys complies fully with the DBS Code of Practice and the Data Protection Act 1998 regarding disclosure information. Any information given will be treated as completely confidential and will only be considered in terms of its relevance to an application for positions to which the order applies. A criminal record will not necessarily be a bar to obtaining a position. If you have any concerns or queries on this matter, please seek advice from the Volunteer Co-ordinator.
