On Monday 30 October, some Safeguarding Hubs sent out email reminders in error.
The error related to people who had a DBS certificate that will soon expire, but is no longer required. For example, someone who had stepped down from working with children or vulnerable adults. In some cases, these people had previously been moved to the 'Archived' list.
The email reminders incorrectly said that these people needed a new DBS check.
Within a few hours we had emailed the affected parishes. We apologised for the error, and pointed them to this page.
The problem was fixed within 24 hours, but we are sorry for any inconvenience that it caused.
