Criminal record checks
Abolish CRB checks and the proposed Independent Safeguarding Authrority. These are unnecessary, because they will only pick up people who already have a criminal record. People who have a tendency to abuse children or elderly or other vulnerable people who have not yet been caught, will not be picked up. These checks are also now causing enormous resentment among people in the community who volunteer, and may result in less people being willing to volunteer and undergo these checks.
Why does this idea matter?
My idea would save vast amounts of public money. My idea would once again restore trust in the community. My idea would prevent significant numbers of volunteers from deciding to give up voluntary work.
