Oxfordshire Mind is not obliged to provide a volunteering placement.

If you have any convictions that are unspent under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, please let us know and provide details below. Please note that some posts within Oxfordshire Mind that are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 as they involve working with vulnerable adults and/or children and young people and will require a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
