Criminal Record Checks
The EPNAVCO Volunteer Management Policy states that in all volunteer placements that the safety of children and vulnerable adults is paramount. Volunteers who have significant access to such clients will be asked to undergo a Criminal Records Check by the organisation they wish to volunteer.
Volunteers will be asked to complete a CRB (Criminal Records
Bureau) form and to provide proof of identity and address for the five years
prior to application. Only original documentation is acceptable. Identity
documents which must be produced are current Passport, Driving licence and an
official document containing your NI number. Two Utility bills or bank
statements showing your current address that are no older than 3 months. Other
documents could include: original birth certificate, Mariage certificate etc
The completed application will then be forwarded to the Criminal Records Bureau in Liverpool where the information supplied will be verified and checked against national databases.
On satisfactory completion applicants will receive a Disclosure Certificate. If, for any reason, the Disclosure Certificate is not issued, the applicant will be informed by letter from the Criminal Records Unit.
