    Do you have any adult cautions (simple or conditional) or spent convictions that are not protected as defined by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (Amendment) (England and Wales) Order 2020?

    Please provide details:

    The amendments to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (2013 and 2020) provides that when applying for certain jobs and activities, certain convictions and cautions are considered ‘protected.' This means that they do not need to be disclosed to employers, and if they are disclosed, employers cannot take them into account.
    If you do not disclose something in your application that could prevent you working with children this could result in you being referred to the police and/or DBS as it is a criminal offence for any person who is barred from working with children and/or vulnerable adults to apply for a role in a regulated activity.
    If you have made a declaration in relation to a conviction that does not threaten the safety of the vulnerable people we support we will consider your application and explore further during the recruitment process.
