We are committed to providing a safe environment for our clients, staff and volunteers. All staff and volunteers over 18 years must undergo a police clearance before commencing work.
VisAbility volunteers who cannot provide a copy of their current (within 6 months) National Police Clearance Certificate will be required to undergo a Volunteer National Police Check, to be renewed every three years. In addition, volunteers selected for a position involving child-related work are required to provide a Working with Children Assessment Notice, to be renewed every three years.
If you are selected for a volunteer position with VisAbility, these matters will be followed up with you. We will assist you with the process of obtaining the necessary checks and cover all associated costs.
Police check results are reviewed on a case by case basis.
