    Knew that shower of tulip were involved
    As for the laptops. Not exactly reasonably half decent ones are they?
    Ok, they might be alright for teaching kids how to colour in and do adding and subtracting but after that.......

    Sorry not being clear, the check is not usable for many purposes. So if you have one for working with children the same check cannot be used for example doing vaccinations or running youth groups. Were I designing it you would have roles and the DBS would be valid for multiple roles, if you have one it can be shared with multiple organisations as you described.

    However my wife definitely got one done for about £3 for a volunteer... maybe some special case or maybe the 'employer' can do them cheaper. The time is a bigger concern, my current client's client insists we all have them and like all government IT, it's tedious

    My kid's school has pretty strict policies against turning your camera on. Audio only.

    Also BBC local radio have a campaign going, and one of the England egg-chasers is fronting another campaign. Nothing about all of this looks in any way organised, which of course is the hallmark of Crapita (and the useless feckers you mentioned).
