Foyle Women’s Aid is a charity organisation which works with vulnerable adults and children. Therefore, it is essential that all staff and volunteers have a background check carried out before joining the organisation.
Access NI is a Criminal History Disclosure Service. It supplies criminal history information to organisations which are required by law to consider the suitability of applicants for certain positions or to ensure that they are not barred from working with vulnerable groups.
For potential employees and volunteers intending on applying to work with Foyle Women’s Aid, it is essential to read the Access NI guidance notes before attempting to complete the form. This will help prevent you from making mistakes which could cause the form to be rejected. Furthermore, you must write in black ink, as failing to do so will mean the form is not viable and will be returned to you.
The sections you must complete will be B, D, E, F and if applicable, G. The form must then be returned to Foyle Women’s Aid along with one form of identification from Group one in the guidance notes and two forms from Group two. Applicants must also sign the ID Validation form and enclose it within the application pack to be returned to Foyle Women’s Aid.
Furthermore, it is important to ensure that the address history dates match up. For example; if you leave your home on the 12.03.12, you must be moving into your new address on the 12.03.12.
