New volunteers MUST attend one of our training sessions. Not applied yet?
We do not DBS check our volunteers on the basis that you do not have prolonged or ongoing contact with our guests . However we hope that everyone appreciates that we are concerned for the safety of our volunteers and guests. Some of our guests do pose a genuine risk both to you, other guests and to themselves. That is why we insist on training you.
As a trained volunteer you are covered by Faith Christian Group’s Public Liability Insurance
No-one who has not been trained will be allowed in the venues between 7.30 pm and 9.00 am That does allow for untrained individuals, even under 18’s, to help with set up provided they are not in the building after 7.30 pm or before 9.00 am the next morning.
Church employed staff on the premises who have not done our training will be there at their own risk.
Overnight volunteers and co-ordinators will be required to do a greater in depth training than normal volunteers.
