Occasional Helpers (people who offer to help occasionally)

  1. Someone offers to help.
  2. Line manager puts them on Compass
  3. Do a DBS
  4. Line manager is responsible for disposing of the Adult Information form and ID checking form if used
  5. After the CE and DBS are OK, invite them to start helping occasionally

Leaders, Assistants, etc (including people changing roles)

  1. Someone offers to help
  2. Line manager puts them on Compass as “pre-provisional” 
  3. Do a DBS (unless they already have one showing on Compass)
  4. Line manager is responsible for disposing of the Adult Information form and ID checking form if used
  5. Line manager gains references or asks the District Administrator to do so. 
  6. After the CE and DBS are OK, invite the applicant to attend a few times to find out what the role they have applied for is really like.
  7. Meanwhile forward the reference to the AAC who will consider their application, often including an interview, and then advise the DC accordingly.
  8. Ask them to wait until they receive a Provisional Appointment Certificate before they start helping; the proviso of which is completion of Getting Started within 5 months of starting.
  9. When their Getting Started shows as validated on Compass:
    1. GSL to invest them
    2. DC to send them an Appointment Certificate in the post
  10. However, if Getting Started is not completed within the 5 month period, the applicant’s role will be changed to Occasional Helper. The applicant will be informed by letter and GSL will be informed by email.
  11. Applicants may apply to the AAC for a further 5 months in which to complete Getting Started in extenuating circumstances.
