    Criminal Records

    Due to the nature of our work at the Hospice and in order to protect certain vulnerable groups within society, there are a number of posts and professions that are exempt from the provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. These include posts where, in normal course of their duties, successful applicants will have access to persons in receipt of health services or supervising children.

    Applicants for these roles are, therefore, not entitled to withhold information about convictions which for other purposes are ‘Spent’ under the provisions of the Act and in the event of employment, any failure to disclose such convictions could result in dismissal or disciplinary action by the employing organisation. Any information given will be confidential and will be considered only in relation to posts to which the order applies.

    Amendments to the Exceptions Order 1975 (2013) provide that certain spent convictions and cautions are ‘protected’ and are not subject to disclosure to employers, and cannot be taken into account.

    Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS)

    If you are applying for a post involving access to persons in receipt of health services or supervising children, your offer of employment may be subject to a satisfactory disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). Failure to reveal information relating to any convictions could lead to withdrawal of an offer of employment. If in doubt, please refer to the job advert, supporting recruitment information or Job Description/Person Specification.

    Reclaim Gift Aid

    Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Weston Hospicecare to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Weston Hospicecare we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

    By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Weston Hospicecare to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Weston Hospicecare will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

    What is Gift Aid?

    Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Weston Hospicecare receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

    All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

    The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
