Depending on the type of volunteering role, not-for-profit organisation may ask you to undergo a police check and/or a working with children check. These are generally required if you will be working with people who are vulnerable, such as the frail aged, people living with disability and children. A criminal record will not automatically disqualify you from volunteering.
