A brief summary of the application process

  • As soon as we have received your expression of interest, we will contact you to discuss the roles that are available and answer any questions you may have.
  • Once decided that volunteering is mutually beneficial, we will contact your two references (no need to be work related) and then book you in for your induction at the hospice.
  • If the role involves working directly with patients, we will need to complete a DBS check before you start.
  • New volunteers will always be supported by an experienced volunteer or member of staff until you’re comfortable with the requirements of your role.

  • Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions Order 1975)

    The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act helps rehabilitated ex-offenders back into work by removing the need for them to declare criminal convictions after the rehabilitation period set by the Court has elapsed and the convictions become "spent". During the rehabilitation period, convictions are referred to as "unspent" convictions and must be declared to employers. Prospect Hospice undertakes not to discriminate unfairly against applicants on the basis of a criminal conviction or other information declared. If you are applying for a role involving access to persons in receipt of health services, your offer of placement may be subject to a satisfactory disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). Failure to reveal information relating to any convictions could lead to withdrawal of a volunteering placement. In order to protect certain vulnerable groups within society, there are a number of roles at Prospect Hospice that are exempt from the provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. If the role you have applied for falls within this category, it will be exempt from the provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act by virtue of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975. Applicants for such roles are not entitled to withhold any information about convictions or other relevant criminal record information which for other purposes are "spent" under the provisions of the Act. Any information provided will be confidential and will be considered only in relation to roles to which the Order applies. From 12 October 2009 under the terms of the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act (2006), all positions involving regulated and certain controlled activity with children and vulnerable adults and which are carried out frequently, intensively or overnight will require an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. You will be advised whether the role for which you are applying is exempt.
