Unlocking Criminal Record Checks

A lot of the contributions to theRecord tend to focus around the difficulties people face in trying to find work with a criminal record.

So, I thought it would be helpful to write a quick post from Unlock, just to flag up a new guide that we have recently written, which focused on the Disclosure & Barring Service and their processes.

Sadly, this guide doesn’t solve all of the problems that people with convictions face, but it should hopefully help people to better understand the process, know where they stand, and also challenge employers and the DBS where appropriate.

There is a more detailed explanation of this guide, and the guide can be download in full here.

We’d be grateful to read your comments on this guide, to see whether you’ve found it useful.

Best wishes,

Christopher Stacey
