Brain Injury Care Provider

Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974

The nature of the post for which you are applying means that it is exempt from Section 4(2) of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. You are not, therefore, entitled to withhold information about cautions or convictions, which for other purposes are ‘spent’ under the provisions of the Act, unless covered by the Disclosure and Barring Service filtering rules which specify under what circumstances certain cautions or convictions are classed as ‘spent’.

Further information can be found at: Filtering rules for DBS certificates

Filtering rules do not apply to certain convictions, please refer to: List of offences that will never be filtered from a DBS certificate

If you are successful the information on the form will be considered and, if you have declared any previous criminal convictions, cautions or reprimands, these may be discussed with you prior to a decision being taken on your appointment. If you are appointed any failure to disclose cautions or convictions not expressly covered by the filtering rules may result in the offer of appointment being withdrawn or disciplinary action being taken and possibly the police and/or the Disclosure and Barring Service being notified.

Please be aware that Almond Care Children’s Services operates a policy on the recruitment of ex-offenders and that a criminal record will not automatically debar anyone from employment with the organisation.

If there are ANY penalties or convictions, even if those are spent, please tick YES.

Thank you for your honesty. A member of our team will contact you to discuss this further.

If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, you must supply details on a separate sheet of paper, place it in a sealed envelope marked confidential and attach it to your application form.


Please sign this agreement to confirm you have read, understood and will adhere to this agreement in accordance with the conditions of your employment with Almond Care or Almond Care Children’s Services.
