Mr. Hoyle

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the provision of free checks for volunteers wishing to work with young and vulnerable people in the voluntary sector. [57048]

We are firmly committed to supporting and promoting all types of volunteering. Therefore the highest levels of disclosures issued by the Criminal Records Bureau—standard and enhanced disclosures, which include those working with children and vulnerable people—are issued free of charge to volunteers in any sector.
