Once you fill the application form in please return it to AVOW together with your Equal Opportunities Form.

We will then arrange an informal chat which will detail the placement and your potential suitability. Once an offer of a placement is made your two references will be contacted.

If a DBS Check is required for the role then that will be completed before the volunteer placement starts.
