@Clinks_Tweets @TransformJust1 @unlockcharity (4) unfortunately we will never move away from DBS checks however there needs to be a way to hold that information where applicable but be 100% supportive to that person and enable them to access the same opportunities in life instead of slamming doors!
@Clinks_Tweets @TransformJust1 @unlockcharity (3) improve employability prospects.
We have found an open approach and open dialogue is far better than anything a DBS check may or may not throw up. Basic opportunities in life such as volunteering really shouldn't be this hard!!!
@Clinks_Tweets @TransformJust1 @unlockcharity (2) the #DBS culture is a blanket, something they can wave around if something does occur, rather than updating their internal practices, risk assessments or due diligence they'd rather turn away a person who is just looking go do something useful with their time, reconnect or
@Clinks_Tweets @TransformJust1 @unlockcharity (1) There needs to be some form of acceptance or middle ground. Time and time again we see barriers put up for those that have a disclosure on their DBS when it comes to #volunteering in #havering we're working constantly to provide equal access to #opportunity.
Based in the heart of Romford the Havering Volunteer Centre (HVC) provides a comprehensive volunteering service to all volunteer-involving organisations and volunteers in Havering.
Our goal is to promote volunteering opportunities that have a positive impact on volunteers, charities and the community and we firmly believe that volunteering enriches lives, enhances local services and increases cohesion in the community.
