Don't want to piss on anyone's chips but if you want to do Kids Q, you're probably opening a can of worms, you'll have to go down the CRB route more than likely and God knows what else including insurance ?
Personally I think it's a great idea but elf 'n'
safety these days is ruining everything.

Isn't a burger on a skewer usually called a Kebab? (A Kabob to our US friends)

I have checked with our Child Safety Officer and she does not think that CRB/DBS will be an issue. What we will be doing will be on par with other voluntary events (something like a church fete) and providing nobody has the opportunity to be alone with any of the children then we will be fine - especially if we ask parents to be present too.

It was just a thought after the first year with that young kid and the photos, Val has CRB clearance for her work so maybe she could 'oversee' if the need arose, but definately better to get the parents involved, we don't want to end up as a creche for the day !

Yes we will ask for parents to be in attendance.

I am sure Wade, Joyce have this CRB Checks and Jill has it as well. So that's four.

I've got 2 so theres 6   :icon_confused:. Personally I think that the kids parents are there is more important than who's got a CRB (is it not DBS now? )

Me too, and yes it is a DBS check

post #50 of 53

Unfortunately CRBs are company specific whereas DBS's are not. For anyone with a CRB it only covers them within the organisation for which it was registered. I was also informed that if you hold a CRB with an organisation you cannot then apply for a DBS within the same organisation and have to wait until you move on to pastures new. If you start working for another organisation in addition though you can then hold both.

The whole CRB mechanism was a nightmare from the time it was originally conceived and simply looked like a revenue stream for the government. At least the DBS's are more logical.

 

So long as we remain as a voluntary organisation whose prime purpose is not to supervise children and remain as a group then it is not an issue. Also if the parents are there then they are classified as supervising their children.

 

You may not realise that "children" are classified as anyone under the age of 18 for CRB/DBS, so technically any of these considerations would apply to even the older "children" that may come along to one of the meets. I know that I am frequently mistaken as being under age but I would like you reassure you that I am not so dont't think you need to get DBS'd on my account :biggrin:
