Equal Opportunities

NAWT welcomes volunteer applicants who bring a varied range of skills and abilities to the Trust. We aim to create a positive environment that enables all volunteers to realise their full potential.

If yes please let us know what reasonable steps you think NAWT needs to take to enable you to volunteer in your preferred role.

Declaring Criminal Convictions

Information about criminal convictions is requested to assist the selection process and will be taken into account only when the conviction is considered relevant to the role. Having a conviction will not necessarily stop you from volunteering, but will need to be taken into consideration when assessing your suitability.


Due to the nature of some of our Volunteer Roles, for example working with animals/handling cash, we request that you supply details of two people we can contact for a reference. If possible, one of these should be a professional referee such as a current or previous employer.

Referee 1

Referee 2
