Havens Hospices is committed to a policy of equal opportunities. To help us ensure we are attracting people from all sections of society to volunteer with us, we would be grateful if you could provide us with information requested in this form. However, it is not a requirement as part of your volunteer application, and it is entirely up to you whether you choose to complete it or not.
We will use this information purely for monitoring purposes, for example to show that 55% of our volunteers are female. This will mainly be for internal monitoring so that we can seek to address any imbalances in our volunteer team, but we may also report this information to external funders where requested. In all cases the information would be anonymised as per the example above.
