New DBS applications procedure for clergy

Due to Margaret Funnell's retirement DBS applications for clergy will now be dealt with at St James House. 

Clergy are requested to ask either their churchwarden or appointed verifier to check the documentation. The form then should be sent to Elaine Leggett. 

When you receive your DBS certificate this should be checked by another member of clergy who then needs to email confirming that there are no disclosures, informing her of the date of issue and certificate number.

If the certificate has a blemish the original needs to be sent by registered post  marked

This procedure only applies to clergy searches.
