All volunteers require a CRB Check
What is a CRB Check?
It is a Criminal Record Bureau check – also called a ‘disclosure’ – it is a check carried out to find out if you have a criminal record.
If I have a criminal record can I volunteer?
Having a criminal record doesn’t always mean you can’t volunteer with us. Many convictions will not be relevant to your volunteering with Inn Churches. We will look at what your criminal record was for, and if you would be in danger to the guests you will be volunteering with. If you have a conviction it is best to discuss this straightaway rather than waiting for the check to come through. If you have any concerns about your CRB please contact us.
Do I have to pay for a CRB check?
No. CRB checks are free to volunteers who apply through their local churches.
How do I arrange a CRB check?
You will normally contact the hosting church that you will be volunteering with. However, if they are unable to conduct CRB checks please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be able to advise you on the way to proceed.
What is an ‘Enhanced’ CRB check?
This is the type of CRB check that you’ll need to apply for – it’s for volunteers who are regular or close contact with vulnerable people, or who have access to personal confidential records about vulnerable people.
