It’s important to us that you feel happy, safe and confident in your role. As a CHAS volunteer you will be invited to complete a short core learning package that is tailored to your role. In addition you will need to complete a two day Moving and Handling course that will be arranged by CHAS. This is needed to make sure that when volunteering you know how to move children, with limited mobility, safely.
We are always developing new opportunities for volunteers to learn and offer a range of options for volunteers.

This role requires membership of the PVG scheme (children and adults). Applicants will need to be 18 years or over. There is a simple form to complete and we will assist you with this. You may already have a PVG form – if so you will only need to complete an update form. The process won’t cost you anything and having a criminal record will not automatically exclude you from volunteering. We will assess each applicant on an individual basis.
We will pay your out of pocket expenses in line with the CHAS volunteer expenses policy.
