Volunteers with Age UK Sutton are required to declare any previous criminal conviction; even those which would normally be considered spent under the Act.
Failure to disclose any criminal offences or Mental Health Act Orders could lead to your application as a volunteer being rejected or, if you are appointed, to your removal from our scheme of volunteers.
However, disclosure of an offence will not necessarily exclude you from consideration and will be held in confidence by Age UK Sutton.
