Amesbury History Centre is committed to an Equal Opportunities Policy and welcomes enquiries from all people regardless of age, creed, gender, race, disability, or background.
Tell Us About Yourself
Amesbury History Centre is committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all and welcomes volunteers from all sections of the community, regardless of colour, race, ethnic or national origin, language, religion or belief, gender or gender reassignment, marital status, sexuality, disability, age, any illness or infection, social background, or organisation role.
In the following questions, we will ask you to provide us with some personal information about yourself. We are doing this to demonstrate our commitment to promoting equality of opportunity in volunteering, and to meet any funding requirements. The information that you provide will assist us to measure the effectiveness of our equal opportunity policies and take action to remove barriers to volunteering where necessary.
Your answers will be treated with the strictest confidence and will be stored securely for the time that you volunteer with us and for 3 months following this. We assure you that your answers will not be used by us to make any unfair decisions affecting you. You are not obliged to answer the questions on this form, and you will not suffer any penalty if you choose not to. If you do not wish to answer a question, simply leave it blank.
Cautions and Convictions
The amendments to the Exceptions Order 1975 (2013) provide that certain spent convictions and cautions are ‘protected’ and are not subject to disclosure to employers and cannot be taken into account. Guidance and criteria on the filtering of these cautions and convictions can be found on the Disclosure and Barring Service website. A criminal conviction will NOT automatically prevent you volunteering; it depends on the offence/s and relevance to the role for which you are applying.
