Any agencies, individuals or other entities such as (but not limited to) past or present employers, educational institutions, law enforcement agencies, social services, other BBBSA agencies and other such entities with which I have had contact, may release any information about, or relating to, me as requested by BBBSA which may be relevant to my involvement with BBBSA;
Collection and retention of my personal information is required as a condition of my engagement with BBBSA and BBBSA may refuse my application or terminate my engagement as a volunteer if my consent is not provided;
A photocopy of this authorisation is sufficient evidence of my consent to the release of any information about, or relating to, me to BBBSA.
