    Criminal Record Checks

    To ensure the safety of our clients, the Citizens Advice service requires that all volunteers who have direct access to clients, where any part of the work is primarily targeted at legally defined vulnerable adults or children, have their criminal records checked.
    In addition we ask all those accepted as volunteers to declare any unspent convictions as part of our standard screening process.

    However, the Citizens Advice service is committed to the promotion and delivery of equal opportunities to volunteers and so has a policy to ensure ex-offenders are not discriminated against. All offences, other than sexual crimes against a child or vulnerable adult, will be treated on an individual basis taking into account issues such as the risk to the client, the circumstances of the offence (eg what it was, is it relevant to the volunteer role, how long ago it was) and the reputation of Citizens Advice.

    Volunteers from Bulgaria, Romania or ALL non-European Union Countries

    You must take responsibility for checking your visa/entry clearance conditions to ensure
    that you are allowed to volunteer in the UK without jeopardising your visa status.

    Help and information on this can be obtained from the UK Border Agency
