Our Parish Safeguarding Officers request that all Working With Children Card Holders to check the Expiry date on your Cards.
A notification is sent by the Child Screening Unit with a link to the renewal process before the expiry date.
Sometimes it is put aside … and forgotten.
Once expired, the renewal process takes more time and effort.
The Card holder is responsible for ensuring that their Card is valid.
Parish Ministry commitments are put on hold if your Card has expired.
