Volunteer FAQs Will there be a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check? Yes, an enhanced DBS check is made for all volunteers who have contact with vulnerable adults and young volunteers. What’s the minimum age for volunteers? 16 is the minimum age; and those under 18 need written consent from a parent or guardian to volunteer. How much time do I need to commit to? Even an hour a week will make a real difference. We will seek to match the time you can spare with our volunteer opportunities. Will I get any expenses? SeeAbility will pay reasonable out of pocket expenses, and you may also claim travel expenses if you wish to. Will I receive any training? We give all volunteers some introductory training when they start and they complete a short safeguarding course within three months of starting.
