    Hi All,
    Need your help!
    In line with the good practice recommendations following the Huntley murders. My band got registered with the CRB (Criminal Record Bureau) and were police checking band members who had an active part in helping with the youth band. Great - all going well... Until that is this year the CRB changed their registered organisation criteria. Our band were withdrawn as a registered body as we weren't doing 150 checks per month. We now have to use an "umbrella body" - not a problem , but I can't get contact with any!

    My question is.. Are there any "umbrella bodies" within the brass band network who we can use to continue obtaining checks and trying our hardest to protect our youth?

    I would be very grateful for any help and advice on this matter!

    Many thanks

    Su Hollick
