Charities Urged to CRB Check Trustees
Posted: 05th November 2009 in Security News
The Charity Commission's report issued in October 2009, Charities Back on Track 2008-09 said: "We remain concerned that the way charities manage procedures for safeguarding vulnerable beneficiaries continues to be a key issue." The watchdog removed or suspended 30 such trustees last year, three times as many as the year before. The people involved included rapists and paedophiles and the Commission urges charities to refer potential trustees to the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) for vetting before making any appointments where children might be put at risk.
