How Can I Prevent Unwanted Disclosures Related to My Gender Identity?

If you are required to complete a CRB Disclosure you can choose to use the CRB’s Confidential Checking Process. If you choose not to use the process and are happy for the name or gender you were assigned with at birth to be disclosed on a completed Disclosure, then you can complete the Disclosure Application Form (DAF) as instructed.

If you decide you do not wish for the name or gender identity you were assigned with at birth to be disclosed to your employer (or similar) on the completed Disclosure, you should contact the CRB and speak to their specialist adviser, The Sensitive Applications Manager who can advise you on what to do.  You can also contact the CRB via email if you prefer, using the email address: customerservices@crb.gsi.gov.uk and requesting that your details are forwarded to the Sensitive Applications Manager, as you wish to use the Confidential Checking Process.

If you do not feel comfortable talking directly to the CRB about your application Galop can liaise with them on your behalf. You will firstly need to advise the CRB (by phone or email) that you have given your permission for the CRB to speak with Galop about you. You can also give permission for another named person (such as a friend or partner), who can then liaise with the CRB on your behalf. Galop can liaise with the CRB on the subject of the Confidential Checking process, but we are not able to help you actually fill in the CRB form itself, as this is something that your employer is responsible for assisting with.
