One CRB check carried out annually

Comment 8th July 2010


Surely, one CRB check annually should allow me to work with all vulnerable groups or it makes the checks seem pointless.

Why does this matter?

I am a "Befriender" for lonely old people, the mother of a Cub Scout where I help out, helper in a toddler group and maybe helper in a new youth group. For all these I have had to have separate CRB checks involving vast expenditure on the organisations' behalf and the expenditure of hours of time for many people, paid and unpaid. Despite all this, I cannot watch the two fostered boys living next door  for five minutes – as this requires it's own CRB check.

This seems ridiculous, wasteful and I believe, puts off many willing and able volunteers.
