Diocesan policies, procedures and practices seek to highlight the importance of protecting children, young people and vulnerable adults by detailing best practice and the procedures that must be taken by the Chancery and Parishes.
Applications for the Working with Children Check and the Employers verification process are completed online. A fee applies for paid workers and self-employed people when applying for a Working with Children Check and is free for volunteers. The Office for Safeguarding & Professional Standards (Chancery) assists Parishes and Chancery Offices with advice on which roles are considered child related and require a check. Positions that are considered child related cannot be taken up until the check is verified. For assistance please contact the Office for Safeguarding & Professional Standards (Chancery).
