We need you to specify how your skills and experience (work related or personal) match the role that you are applying for. If applying for multiple roles you must specify for each role otherwise we will not be able to consider you. Include details of any qualifications that you have that may help you as a volunteer.

Please give details but do not declare spent convictions. All information will be treated with strict confidence. A previous criminal record does not mean your application will be automatically rejected as each application is assessed on its own merits. If none please state None
