Disclosing convictions

Unlock, the national charity that provides information and advice services for people with convictions, has published a detailed guide all about the DBS checking process for people who have a criminal record.

The guide is called ‘Unlocking Criminal Record Checks’ and is available from
Unlock’s website. It contains information that will help those with convictions understand how the process works and how it impacts on them.
