CRB Checks damage the volunteering sector

Comment 9th July 2010

The CRB check regime seems specially designed to stop people getting involved in helping others. I visit patients in hospital who have had heart attacks.  As a fellow sufferer I can help to reassure them that there is life after heart attack and help their rehabilitation.  I had to have a CRB check so that I could visit adults in hospital.  What a nonsense as many people visit friends and relations in hospital and have access to other patients without going through this costly pantomime. Scrap it!

Why does this matter?

If people want to volunteer, government should make it easy for them to do so.  Not put up nonsensical barriers.  W are not all intent on harming others.  Most of us just want to help
