Volunteer Application Form for people under 18 and vulnerable adults

The Friends of Richmond Park (FRP) welcomes all volunteers.

However, for insurance and legal reasons^ , volunteers aged less than 18 years and vulnerable adults may participate in FRP volunteering activities only where:

  • the work to be undertaken does not involve equipment requiring skilled operation; and
  • the individual has been trained in the tasks to be performed; and
  • the individual is supervised at all times by a nominated responsible adult.

The nominated adult must be a parent or guardian and must agree to the consent statement at the bottom of the page.

THE NOMINATED ADULT SUPERVISOR AND THE UNDER-18 OR VULNERABLE VOLUNTEER MUST  BOTH BE MEMBERS  OF  FRIENDS  OF  RICHMOND  PARK.  If you don't already have a membership you can join online here:   Membership Application

At present only litter picking (Adopt-an-Area) meets these criteria.

Thank you for applying to be a volunteer with Friends of Richmond Park. Please fill in the details requested below and press "Send" to submit the form.  A copy of the details you have submitted will be emailed to you for your records.  If you are under 18 there is a link to a separate Under-18 Volunteer form at the bottom of the page.

    By submitting this form you agree to the following:

    "I confirm that I will supervise the above Volunteer when they are participating in FRP volunteering activity.

    I accept that if they perform any activity unsupervised by me this will not be part of FRP volunteering and will be at their own risk.

    I agree to follow the Volunteering, Child Protection and Vulnerable Adult policies."


    TO  VOLUNTEER  YOU  MUST  BE  A  MEMBER  OF  FRIENDS  OF  RICHMOND  PARK.  If you don't already have a membership you can join online here: Membership Application

    ^ Volunteers who are either under the age of 18 or vulnerable adults cannot participate in volunteering activities in the absence of a nominated adult as they would not be covered by insurance and The Friends of Richmond Park would also fail to have complied with the requirements for safeguarding as set out by the Disclosure and Barring Service.
