The Telegraph complains about the degree to which the Church of England carries out CRB checks.
Among the posts for which people had to be CRB'ed were organist (somebody who is in a position of authority, including for young people); night-shelter worker (somebody in a position of care for vulnerable adults); bell tower captain (see organist), bell ringing instructor (see bell tower captain) and bereavement visitor (see night-shelter worker).
Yes, the most important thing is that procedures are in place, that policies are visible, taken seriously and enforced.
But if an Anglican church didn't check a bell tower captain, organist or Sunday club leader who later turned out to be a convicted sex offender, do you think the Telegraph would be charitable, and in favour of dispensing with such checks?
No, I don't think so, either.
