As an organisation committed to the safeguarding of children and young people, we must be sure that any new volunteers are suitable before they can take on their role and we would ask you to assist us in this important matter.

Could you please take a few minutes to complete this reference, which will remain confidential, and return it to the person identified at the bottom of this page? It would be very helpful to have your reply as soon as possible, so that the voluntary appointment is processed as efficiently as possible.

In commenting on the applicant, please would you bear in mind that the appointment under consideration may involve substantial work with children, young people or charitable funds. We would therefore appreciate you being extremely candid in your responses.
