Changes to Disclosure and Barring – What you need to know
This leaflet tells you about important changes which the Government will be making to criminal records and barring arrangements in September 2012.
This leaflet is for organisations (employers, voluntary organisations and charities) who engage people to work with vulnerable groups including children. This is work which a barred person must not do (called ‘regulated activity’), or work for which the organisation may obtain a Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check. This will often involve contact with the CRB and/or the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA).
