Restrictions on volunteering:
Le Chéile recognises that people from the helping professions and the criminal justice sector may wish to volunteer as a Mentor with us and we acknowledge this with good intent. However in order to avoid any perception of a conflict of interest, there are restrictions on volunteering for some professions. This applies to serving probation staff, court personnel, Gardai and prison officers.

Please tick to indicate you are not in one of these restricted groups.

All offences must be noted if they occurred less that 7 years ago, while minor road traffic and other minor offences incurred over 7 years ago are considered ‘spent’ and may be omitted. Please see our Volunteering Information booklet for more information on whether you should list a charge or conviction)
