11. Should bell-ringers and choir members be subject to DBS clearance?

by Michael Ford last modified 10 Dec, 2015 12:08 PM

Bell- ringers and members of choirs are not in eligible categories for DBS checks. Tower Captains should be subject to DBS clearance, as should all bell-ringers, if they are personally teaching or training children under the age of 18. The teaching of adults at risk of abuse is less clear and perhaps should be considered on a case by case basis. Choirmasters, and if applicable organists where there is no choirmaster, who have children in their choir are subject to DBS clearance.
