Volunteer Consent Release Form
I wish to become a volunteer with a program of Catholic Charities of Central Florida and will only perform activities that I am comfortable doing. I understand that my participation may involve physical activity and contact with unfamiliar persons. Knowing this, I wish to volunteer and assume all risk with respect to any accidents or injuries to person or property that I may sustain, including death. In addition, I hereby release and forever indemnify Catholic Charities of Central Florida, its directors, officers, employees, community partners, sponsors, volunteers, affiliates, agents, designees, and successors from any and all liability or responsibility, including claims based upon the action, or negligence of any of the released parties for any damage to property or personal injury, including death. If I do not fully comprehend this statement I will seek legal advice before signing.
The identities of our clients, their confidences and their records are confidential by law. This office requires that confidentiality laws be followed strictly. We cannot serve our clients effectively unless they can talk freely without concern that their confidences will be revealed to others. Any employee or volunteer who violates confidentiality is subject to dismissal and may be subject to a lawsuit from the client.
Keep files face down on your desk and throughout the office so a client’s name cannot be seen.
Address clients as “Sir” or “Ma’am”, without the clients name if others are present.
Comply with a client’s written permission to disclose identity, confidences or records.
Observe the limits and conditions a client places on any permission to disclose information.
Reveal a client’s identity in any way.
Address a client by name when other persons or other clients are in the office.
Disclose to anyone that a person is a client, including a client’s spouse or other family member.
Have files on your desk or anywhere else so that a client’s name can be seen by anyone.
Talk about your clients by name with your spouse or other relatives.
Store files in your desk overnight.
Requests for information about present or former clients may come from police or other law enforcement personnel, lawyers, or the courts. Do not disclose information unless instructed to by your supervisor. This applies even if you receive a subpoena. If you receive these requests, immediately tell your supervisor, who will work with agency leadership to determine whether and how the request must be honored.
Some exceptions to confidentiality may require disclosures about clients. Immediately inform your supervisor of information about clients which leads you to believe that you, the client, or anyone else may be in danger or that a client may be involved, directly or indirectly, in the abuse or neglect of themselves, a child, aged person, or disabled person.
By checking this box, you and agree to abide by all aforementioned policies and statements. It is the responsibility of each volunteer to become familiar with the policies and statements above.
Catholic Charities of Central Florida reserves the right to alter or update the policies and statements at any time, and expects volunteers to adhere to all new policies.
