Police Check
Most organisations require volunteers to undergo a Police Check to ensure the suitability of volunteers for the role they are wanting to undertake.  This is not a difficult process and a lot of organisations can support volunteers to undertake this.  It is important to note that it can take around 4 weeks to get the results of this check back.
