What is a Volunteer?
A person engaged in an activity which involves spending time, unpaid (except for travel and other
approved out-of-pocket expenses), doing something which aims to benefit some third party other than, or in
addition to, a close relative.’
To qualify for a volunteer check, the applicant must not:
- benefit financially from the position for which the application is being submitted
- receive any payment (except for travel and other approved out-of-pocket expenses)
- be on a work placement
- be in a trainee position or undertaking a course of study that will lead to a full time role/qualification
- be a paid foster carer or a member of a foster care household.
All enhanced checks, including voluntary, can only be obtained through an employer or an agency and must meet the eligibility requirements for that level of check.
