Important Message- 31/05/13
There are several changes and messages we need to relay to our members as a result of the government changes to the Safeguarding and Vetting requirements in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. As with many changes of this nature, it is not straight forward therefore the website will be regularly updated with new information over the coming months. Please check the Disclosure and Barring Service section of the website regularly to keep informed.
