Volunteering FAQs

I can’t find a suitable role. Am I still able to help?

Contact the Programme and Volunteering Manager at volunteering@kidscape.org.uk or call 020 7730 3300 and we can discuss your requirements.

Can I claim expenses?

Volunteers should not be out of pocket as a result of volunteering for us. We reimburse reasonable travel costs to and from the organisation, travel while volunteering and other expenses by arrangement.

My company encourages me to volunteer. Can you help?

There are many ways in which you can volunteer, either as an individual or as a team. If you can't find what you are looking for or want to discuss your requirements in more detail, please contact us at volunteering@kidscape.org.uk

What if I have a criminal record?

As an organisation committed to equality and diversity, we recognise the contribution that all people can make as employees or volunteers, and so we welcome enquiries of interest from everyone. For roles where you will be working directly with young people we will ask for a DBS check to be carried out. These are reviewed and assessed on a case by case basis.

How can I prove I'm a volunteer if someone asks?

Volunteers in some roles will receive a photo identity card but not all volunteers will be given one. If anyone questions you, call us on 020 7730 3300 and we'll verify that you're a volunteer.
