CRB Checks

CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) implemented the disclosure service to provide criminal record checks for all individuals who come into contact with children, the elderly and other vulnerable people through their work. This service extends the availability of police record checks to all organisations which previously could only be accessed by certain public sector organisations.
POVA (Protection of Vulnerable Adults) scheme is a register of professionals who have harmed vulnerable adults in their care. Your name will be checked against this register during the CRB check.

For more information on what CRB checks are, please see the Home Office web site.
