Every adult over the age of 18 involved in Scouting must have criminal record checks carried out, and renewed, every 5 years. These checks must be from the Czech Republic, and also from the UK if one has lived there past one’s 10th birthday. These checks ensure that those involved with children in the group are suitable to do so.
The process is laid out below.
You will need to fill in the Adult Information form. The completed form should be emailed to Mark.Farrell@britishscoutingoverseas.org.uk
The information from this form will be transferred to the UK Scout HQ system. All information stored will be managed in line with Data Protection Legislation. This form includes the need to ask for two referees that you have known for 5 years or more to verify you are suitable to work with children.
