How to request reimbursement for expenses related to obtaining a police check and completing the KHSC medical form:
After three months of consistent service, you can submit an electronic or hard copy receipt (originals required) for expenses related to your application to become a KHSC volunteer (i.e., a police records check with the vulnerable sector search and the KHSC medical form). 

Please note: If there are financial barriers that prevent you from waiting three months for reimbursement, please contact Volunteer Services. The Department does not want a financial barrier to prevent someone from volunteering at KHSC.

Policies

Many important policies are relevant to your role as a volunteer (e.g. dress code, scent free, confidentiality, use of electronic devices, code of conduct, etc).  If you have a question about a specific policy, please contact Volunteer Services or you can also review the appropriate eLearning modules on the Orientation section of this site. 

Dress Code

KHSC strives to provide a workplace environment where staff and volunteers feel comfortable and safe while dressed accordingly. Clothing must be in good condition, clean and appropriately fitted with I.D. badges properly placed at chest level on a KHSC uniform.

Although the guidelines allow for a wide range of apparel options, some clothing and accessories are more suitable than others for the work environment.
