As a volunteer for Redkite I acknowledge and agree:

  • I will not be paid for my voluntary work with Redkite
  • Redkite considers the protection of the privacy of those who have been assisted or supported by Redkite, and their families, as extremely important and so I agree not to divulge information regarding families (confidential, or otherwise) to anyone outside of Redkite or share information with employees who it is not relevant to, whether during or after the end of my participation as a volunteer
  • I will not be under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs at any time whilst volunteering at Redkite

  • I will follow all or any reasonable instructions given by a Redkite employee
  • I will alert my manage at Redkite immediately if there are any issues that I become aware of that may bring Redkite into disrepute. This would include complaints, confrontations, accidents, or fraudulent activities at Redkite events

  • If my State or Territory Law requires it, I give my consent to Redkite to perform any police and background checks that are required. I understand that a failure to provide consent may result in the forfeiting of my participation as a volunteer for Redkite
  •  I confirm that I have not been convicted of a criminal offence or offences involving children.
  • I am volunteering my time in the best interests of Redkite and will not do anything to bring Redkite into disrepute.

    • any breach by me of these terms of volunteering.

“Claim” includes any action, liability, proceeding, demand, damage, loss, cost, or expense however arising, including by me. Redkite need not make any payment before enforcing this indemnity. This indemnity does not apply to the extent that Redkite is negligent. I understand that this indemnity I am giving survives the end of my participation as a volunteer for Redkite
