Vetting Policy and Procedure

This vetting policy will apply when recruiting all Prison Fellowship employees, volunteers, temporary staff and any other role not covered by the term employee or volunteer. It is designed to assist in ensuring that all persons working with children, young people and vulnerable adults on behalf of Prison Fellowship, are trustworthy and reliable and are not subject to any offences, which present a risk to children, young people and vulnerable adults.

This policy is also designed to support Prison Fellowship’s wider recruitment and safeguarding policy and procedure and will form a part of PF’s Safeguarding and general recruitment procedures.

You may also like to refer to the Safer Working Guide, and the Safeguarding Policy.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Safeguarding Officer on 020 7799 2500.

“I can honestly say that I never had as much satisfaction when I worked as I do now as a volunteer.” — Arthur, Chaplaincy Support volunteer

Volunteer with PF

Volunteers are the life-blood of our organisation, and what they do in the lives of those in prison and as they pray, is incredibly valuable. If you are looking to use your time to support some of the most marginalised people in our society to transform their lives, then volunteering could be for you.
