Criminal Record Checks - Update

What constitutes an accepted completed CRC - explained

As part of our safeguarding children strategy, The FA requires those working in eligible* roles with children and young people to pass a criminal records check. This is in line with legislation and government guidance is standard practice. 

Activities that require a check (Eligibility):
Eligibility is governed by legislation and government guidance. In brief that means, anyone aged 16 years or over who undertakes any supervised roles with children and young people under the age of 18.

What constitutes an accepted completed CRC?

The County has had numerous responses from clubs saying 'The Coach has told us that they have received their new CRC' or 'Online Disclosures is indicating the individual's CRC application is COMPLETE'.

The full process was explained to all Club Welfare Officers at their workshop in Late Spring 2018 and information was also included in the Safeguarding Memory Stick issued to Welfare Officers ready for the 2018/19 season.

Please see a further explain below and if there are still any doubts, please contact Hunts FA and ask to speak to any of the Safeguarding Team.

Please remember:

No adult is cleared to coach until the Whole Game System (WGS) indicates an adult’s new CRC is registered as ACCEPTED (You will need to check the new expiry date to ensure the new CRC has been uploaded).
