Find a volunteering role

Whether you fancy being a fundraiser, a My Guide, a puppy walker or any of the many other volunteering roles we have available, just complete the boxes below to find out how you can support Guide Dogs in your area.

Please note that when applying you will be asked for details of two referees so make sure you have their details to hand, and have their permission to use them as a referee. We are unable to take references from relatives or people that live at the same address as you, and we ask that they have known you for the last two years.

Any information given will be treated in the strictest confidence by our Volunteering Office and anything declared on this form will be discussed with you fully in the first instance. Suitable applicants will not be refused posts because of offences which are not relevant to the role and which do not make them a risk in the role for which they are applying.

All cases will be examined on an individual basis, taking the following into consideration:

· Whether the conviction is relevant to the position applied for
· The seriousness of any offence revealed
· The age of the applicant at the time of the offence(s)
· The length of time since the offence(s) occurred
· Whether the applicant has a pattern of offending behaviour
· The circumstances surrounding the offence(s), and the explanation(s) offered by the person concerned
· Whether the applicant's circumstances have changed since the offending behaviour

Further advice on disclosing a criminal record, including guidance on whether your conviction is spent, can be found at www.nacro.org.uk
