Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 – Exemption form S4(2)

Having a criminal record will not necessarily be a bar to involvement as a volunteer with St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth.

Information on criminal records will be discussed in an open and measured way with the manager and, dependant on the role, may require further checks under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 – Exemption Form S4 (2). Depending on your role, you may be required to complete a self-disclosure of any unspent convictions.

It is important that you advise us of any changes to your personal details so that our records remain current.

In some areas of activity where direct contact with patients or young people is required, a DBS check will be necessary.
