Previous Convictions & CRB Checks

This section tells you about changes to the sexual offences laws and how these affect previous convictions for offences which have now been decriminalised. It gives advice on what can and cannot be disclosed in a Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check.
If you are trans and would like more information about how to protect yourself from disclosure about your gender history such as previous names, please see the section on CRB checks and gender identity.

If you apply for certain jobs such as teaching, care work and other positions (including voluntary work) where you may work with children or vulnerable adults, your prospective employer is required to check your police record through the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB).
