Confidential Declaration Form
Please complete the attached confidential declaration form. Under the terms of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 the age range you will be working with is a ‘vulnerable’ group and this means that you are exempt from the Act and can be asked to declare any previous criminal convictions including ‘spent’ convictions. This information can then be used for deciding whether or not you are suitable to work with the age range group. Failure to disclose criminal convictions may result in the termination of your services.
Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) Enhanced Check
In order to work with children or vulnerable adults an enhanced DBS check must be obtained, through the diocese, from the Disclosure & Barring Service.
