The minimum age for helpers is 16 years old. Helpers over 18 years old must hold DBS clearance and ALL
helpers must complete the Catholic Church safer recruitment process. There is no charge for DBS applications which must have been issued within the last 3 years at the appropriate level. Forms are available from the Diocesan Safeguarding Office on 0151 652 9855.
If you have received any cautions, warnings or convictions please discuss these in strict confidence with Andrew O’Brien, Diocesan Safeguarding Co-ordinator, on the above number before submitting your booking form. Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar you from work.
