Benefits to your business
The Give an hour campaign is a great way to give something back to your community and ignite your team at the same time.
It helps give young people in your area the skills and knowledge that they need while also potentially finding new recruits for your business.
By becoming involved, you can shape the future leaders in your community.
What can you do in an hour?
It might feel like an hour is too short to have a real impact, but we know from experience that an hour can create new perspectives and inspire new ideas.
You could speak to a class about your sector, play a role in a business competition, carry out a mock interview or support a CV workshop.
Even these short activities make a big difference and can change a young person’s life.Find out more
Your questions answered
- If you are working as a volunteer in a school and the activity with young people is supervised and infrequent (less than 3 times a month), it is unlikely the school will require an enhanced DBS check, but they may still ask for you to complete one.
- If you are volunteering more frequently (3 times or month +) in schools and the work is supervised, an enhanced DBS check may be required.
- If you are working unsupervised and delivering any form of regulated activity to a young person or group of young people, the school will require an enhanced DBS check with a Children Barred list check.
- In all cases it would be down to the individual schools to ensure the safeguarding of the children is acceptable and in line with their safeguarding policy and the statutory guidance Keeping Children Safe in Education.
