YWAM England and Wales, as an agency working with children and young people, is exempt from the UK Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (1974) and therefore applicants must declare all previous convictions. Police record checks can be made by YWAM to verify information.
In accordance with the UK Data Protection Act (1998), the information provided on my staff application form will be held securely, confidentially and only used for the purposes needed.
CONSENT FOR TREATMENT – AN EMERGENCY PROVISION
In the event that I am unable to sign a consent form due to incapacity, I hereby give my consent for any treatment/medical intervention deemed necessary by the attending health care professionals. Whilst YWAM will make every effort to contact my next of kin/emergency contacts, there may be situations where this is not possible. I, therefore, give permission for YWAM to act in my best interests. I recognize that in an emergency situation it is standard operating procedure to always act in the interest of preserving life.
RELEASE OF LIABILITY
Though every effort is made to provide a safe environment, Youth With A Mission Limited, their agents, employees and volunteer assistants are insured against loss or injury caused by the negligence of Youth With A Mission Limited.
In the absence of any negligence or other breach of duty by Youth With A Mission Limited, participation in a Youth with A Mission Limited organised programme, event or outreach is entirely at the participant’s own risk.
Accordingly participants are required to have adequate medical insurance for all phases of their involvement with Youth With A Mission Limited.
If needed, I consent to a criminal records check if appointed to the position for which I have applied. I am aware that details of pending prosecutions, previous convictions, cautions, or bindovers against me may be disclosed along with any other relevant information, which may be known to the police.
If needed, I understand that, if I am a UK resident, a check will be made with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and that it is an offence for any person to commence Regulated Activity without first providing a valid DBS Disclosure. If I am an overseas resident, I understand that I will need to provide a police check from my home nation if the position I am appointed to requires it.
I agree to inform the person within the YWAM base/team responsible for processing applications for Disclosure and Barring Service checks if I am convicted of an offence after I take up any post within YWAM England. I understand that failure to do so may lead to the immediate suspension of my work with children or vulnerable adults and/or the termination of my work/training association with YWAM.
I agree to inform the person within YWAM responsible for processing applications for the Disclosure and Barring Service if I become the subject of a police and/or a social services/(Children’s Social care or Adult Social Services)/social work department investigation. I understand that failure to do so may lead to the immediate suspension of my work with children or vulnerable adults and/or the termination of my work/training and association with YWAM.
Due to the nature of the living environment for most of our YWAM teams, with staff and families with small children living in close proximity, we need to also ask you to sign this statement.
I confirm that I am not barred from working with children/vulnerable adults.
I have read and agree with the DECLARATIONS, CONSENT FOR TREATMENT and RELEASE OF LIABILITY above, and I declare that I have completed this application truthfully, to the best of my knowledge.
