CRB checks for coaches

There is a growing requirement for club coaches to have had a CRB (criminal records bureau) check. It’s an easy and painless process and costs nothing. The SLOW Committee recommends that all our coaching helpers do this.

All you do is ring up and answer a few questions:

Ring: 0870 90 90 844

Type of disclosure? Answer: Enhanced

Provide: Name, Address, Telephone Number, National Insurance Number, Place of Birth, Date of Birth

Who has asked you to provide the Disclosure? Answer: British Orienteering Federation

In what capacity is the Disclosure provided? Answer: Volunteer coach (this also ensures no charge is made for the check.)

Who will countersign the application? Answer: British Orienteering Federation

The reference number for the Countersignatory: 2029 290000 8

When you receive the pre-printed form:

Complete any relevant sections and check that the pre-printed sections are correct, then send the form, with the relevant documents (recorded delivery is recommended) to BOF office marked Confidential for the Attention of Alex Ross. Make sure you use black ink!
