    We recognise that people may regard the questions on disability and sexual orientation as personal and private. We also recognise that people may be wary of identifying themselves in a number of the aspects listed below for fear of discrimination. You are not required to answer any or all questions, though it is helpful to us if we have a 100% response.

    The role(s) you have applied for is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 as a result of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exemption) Order 1975.
    You are, therefore not entitled to withhold information about convictions which for other purposes are 'spent' under the provisions of the Act.
    Any information given will be completely confidential and will be considered only in relation to an application for role(s) to which the order applied.
    Please give details of all criminal information including details and dates of 'spent' convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings as well as other relevant non-conviction information, such as police enquiries and pending prosecutions.
    Relevant criminal convictions and other associated information will be discussed at the interview in order to assess volunteer related risks. You are encouraged to submit appropriate written details and dates and to attach any other information you wish to draw our attention to that may improve our understanding and fair decision making.
    Please submit this information, in confidence to Denise Murray, Project Co-ordinator, who is responsible for ensuring the security of this highly sensitive information.
    If, after your interview, we tell you that we are proceeding with your application, any subsequent offer of a role will be subject to satisfactory checks such as references, and the result of a Disclosure and Barring Service Check from the Criminal Records Bureau.
    You will be given the opportunity to discuss Disclosure information before a final decision is made as part of a post-interview process.
