To ensure the safety of our clients/members a DBS check must be completed for all positions. A criminal record will not necessarily be a bar to obtaining a job. If a check is returned and reveals any information, this will be discussed with the applicant. A decision will be made as to whether the offer of employment should be withdrawn.
