Guidance on the Vetting and Barring Scheme

The new Vetting and Barring Scheme aims to protect children and vulnerable adults by ensuring that people who are judged to present a risk of harm are not allowed to work with them. Generic guidance on the Vetting and Barring Scheme has been prepared for employers, applicants and other users of the scheme.

It is available from the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) website:
