Vetting & Barring - Remodelling Review

Published: 16th February 2011

In its “Programme for Government”, the Coalition committed to reviewing the Vetting & Barring Scheme (VBS) to scale it back to common sense levels.

The VBS had been created to help safeguard children and vulnerable adults, following the Bichard Inquiry and was designed to check the records of those who wanted to work with vulnerable groups.
