After Application

The registration fee provides you with extensive UK based support starting with:

Individual Placement Service: to provide you with the opportunity you want.

Once you are placed you'll receive:

Planning and Budgeting Assistance: to help you plan and budget your stay according to your requirements and the available possibilities.

About Fundraising: a pack of hints, ideas, and guidelines to get you thinking about fundraising.

We'll send these to you by e-mail if you have Internet access, or by post if you don't.

Website Sponsorship Page: we'll set up a Sponsorship Page for you on our website which will allow your friends, family, colleagues, and any other donors you tell about it to make donations to your target using their credit or debit cards.  E-fundraising made simple!

Three months before you go you'll get:

Visa Information: UK residents only.

Preparation and Packing Information: including a kit list, so you know what to bring and what to leave behind, and various other bits and pieces of useful information.

Detailed Health Information: letting you know what to do and what not to do to stay healthy, and information about vaccinations and prophylaxes typically recommended for the region.

Emergency Contact Details: to give your family.

Pre-departure Form: to collect details of your flights, insurance, vaccinations, etc.

Reference, Health, and Criminal Record Checks
In order to protect the local communities where we place Independent AidCamp volunteers, and our partner organisations, we will ask for and may check details of your criminal record if you are going to be working with children or vulnerable adults.

We will also ask for references from two people with experience of you in a non-personal capacity, and certification that you are both physically and psychologically fit to volunteer from your doctor.

Please click here for details of our applicant checks (even if you don't have a criminal record) and for our recruitment of ex-offenders policy.

Please note that we cannot accept applications from residents of countries where there is no formal criminal record checking system if the placement requested involves working with children and/or vulnerable adults..

We won't necessarily exclude you if you don't come through 100% clean on these checks, but if you have any criminal record at all, or have any health problems whatsoever, you should contact us before applying.

If we find out later that there's something relevant you didn't tell us about, you won't go and you won't get a refund.

See Joining Up to apply for an Independent AidCamp, either online or by post.
