Before taking on a role which means that you have significant regular contact with, or take responsibility for children or for adults who are in vulnerable situations you must go through the Church’s current appointment procedures. The forms are available from your Parish Safeguarding Representative or from the Safeguarding Team at Cathedral House. There have been changes to the eligibility criteria for DBS Disclosures which means that some roles no longer qualify. If, however, the role you are taking on does require a DBS you must have one through the Archdiocese.
