“It feels nice to be part of a group who help each other and are friendly. It makes me feel special.” 

Maddison, aged 10.

What do the clergy think?

“I have been involved with CLCGB since 1969 and have seen how precious it was and what a difference it made in my Parish, All Saints & Martyrs Langley, which had a huge Company. It brings what young people need to young people, it gives them friendship, it gives them fellowship and fun."

Bishop Jack Nichols

DBS Update - Working safely

font size

Following recent processes with DBS, under the new system, Brigade NHQ still receives the completed applications for enhanced record checks and then sends them on to DBS. However, NHQ no longer receives a copy of the results of the check – only confirmation that the results have been dispatched to the applicant.

This new procedure means that the only way Brigade can be sure that the applicant is clear of any record which may have a bearing on their suitability to work with children is by asking the applicant to allow either the OIC or the Incumbent (Priest) to have sight of the DBS document and report the sighting to NHQ.

I hope you will understand that such a procedure is necessary to ensure that the Brigade observes the proper safeguarding practices. It does mean that we have to ask you to complete a new form NF1S indicating that the document has been inspected. In future, all applicants will need to be informed in advance of their application that they will be required to allow OIC/Incumbent to view their DBS document. At present, there is no other way for an ‘employer’ to check the results of the DBS process.

A sample form which will be sent out to the OIC/Preist is available at the following link  default  NF1S Working Safely example (190.12 kB)
