Quite simply, to carry out a single CRB check, rather than one for every activity you may be involved with. This would cut down on vast volumes of administration with huge costs to the taxpayer, but importantly, it would also speed up the process, which is one of the main complaints of the present system.

Like others, I am tempted to suggest that you get rid of the checks altogether, but I can see there would be an immediate outcry if there was just one unfortunate incident, resulting in immediate cries for a government minister's head to roll.

Why is this idea important?

Because it is so beaurocratic and top heavy. It has the effect of putting off volunteers, who the backbone of our society. Register once, and review every five years, should suffice.
