Data Protection

If, whilst volunteering, you are police cautioned, given final warning or reprimanded, or are subject to any police investigation, you must inform the Volunteer Co-ordinator immediately.

As you have provided personal information to Locala Community Partnerships on your application for voluntary service, this application form seeks your consent for us to use the information provided. The Data Protection Act (1998) (the Act) sets out certain requirements for the protection of your personal information against unauthorised use of disclosure. The Act also gives you certain rights. By signing this page, as part of your application for voluntary work, you consent for Locala Community Partnerships to use and keep this information about you, provided by you or third parties, such as referees, relating to your application. Such information may include details relating to your health or ethnic origin. If your application is unsuccessful, or you choose not to become a volunteer, then the information will not be held for longer than is necessary, after which time it will be destroyed. However, some relevant information may be retained in the longer term to facilitate our equal opportunities monitoring. If your application is successful, the information will form part of your file and we will be entitled to process it for all purposes in connection with your voluntary activities. You will need to bring with you a photographic record of your identity (e.g. passport, new style driving license, student ID or bus pass).
