F&BF Schools Speaker Application Form

Thank you for your interest in F&BF’s interfaith and intercultural work in schools.  We are delighted that you are considering volunteering with us.  Our volunteers are an essential part of our work, providing inspiration for their fellow staff and volunteers as well as for the young people to whom they speak.  In 2016-17 our workshops reached over 8,569 young people, across Greater London and Birmingham.

We ask you initially to provide us with some information about yourself.  If you are selected, we will then be in touch with an invitation to a short interview (in person or via Skype).

Personal Information


Since this role involves regular work in schools, it is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (1974).  Prospective volunteers must therefore disclose all spent and unspent convictions, and the role is subject to an enhanced DBS check (the cost of which is met by F&BF).

Do you have any spent or unspent convictions? *
If you answer 'yes' to the above question, you will be contacted in due course with further details of F&BF's policies and processes.
