2. Confirming your Placement

Once we have received your form we will check placement availability and contact you within seven working days to send you a volunteering placement offer with details of your (non-refundable) Joining Fee of £420 and the cost of your Project Fee ( this is dependent on the number of weeks you have applied to join us for) . If you accept our volunteering placement offer, the next step is for you to confirm your placement as a Book Bus volunteer. We will then send you more details on how to get ready for your volunteering experience including how to obtain a criminal record check from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) which is required for working with children.

The Book Bus will continue to provide on-going volunteer support with you until your departure and throughout your time whilst you volunteer with us.

Please note that you should not make any travel arrangements to your project destination before you have received confirmation of your volunteer placement. Our recommended travel partner in the UK is VentureCo Worldwide Ltd, who can help arrange your travel plan and any onward travel before or after your volunteer placement.
