Vetting and Barring Scheme to be "remodelled"

The government has stopped the requirement for registration with the Vetting and Barring Scheme.  They plan to review and remodel the scheme which they see as bureaucratic and disproportionate.  It is argued that the scheme has advesely affected the numbers of people coming forward to those voluntary organisations working with children or providing activities for them.  See Home Office for full details.  It is important to note that most of the child protection arrangements remain in place and are not affected by this decision - see the earlier Home Office link.
