Part of the registration includes police screening of volunteers who have 'substantial and unsupervised access to children' and these are currently free.
Milton Keynes Council is encouraging any groups who are working with young people to register.
Costs are: £12.00 per year for voluntary groups.
There are many advantages to the scheme eg.
- Processing of DBS checks (police checks)
- Guidance and advice on setting up a management committee.
- Possible access to subsidised funding for Council premises – Wider Use Funding
- Added to voluntary group and sports group directory – which is available on the web.
