Membership benefits

Membership pack
Every CCPAS member receives a full membership pack. This includes access to the ‘Members Only’ area of our website; the Further Learning Module DVD - Safer Recruitment; a ‘Worker’s Pocket Guide’ and all the information needed to start processing disclosures.

Ten free disclosure checks/registration to E-bulk online checks
Ten free paper disclosure checks for volunteers, or free registration to our online DBS (previously known as CRB) checks system (the normal one-off registration fee is £45+VAT).

In Scotland applications must be made locally, but CCPAS offer free consultation on issues arising from disclosures.

Advice on disclosure specific issues
If we process DBS or AccessNI checks for member organisations (or if they are based in Scotland) we can provide confidential advice about any information those checks reveal. This advice is always confirmed in writing.

Reduced rates on bespoke training
Bespoke training, on many aspects of safeguarding, is available at reduced rates for members. Click here for more information.

Regular updates
Full Updates about changes to EU and government legislation (throughout the UK) and recommended good practice are emailed quarterly to member organisations. In addition, important ‘Breaking News’ items and ‘Updates to Disclosure’ practice are sent, as they happen, to our ‘Members Only’ blog site.

Safe and Secure Online Manual
CCPAS’s members have access to our comprehensive, fully searchable online manual. This includes easily-adaptable model policies and forms (specific to all four UK nations). It is updated regularly, so members receive the very latest information at all times.

Free places on Facing the Unthinkable training
‘Facing the Unthinkable’ training takes place across the UK. Members’ Lead Recruiter and Senior Leader (as stated on their registration form) may join a session - whenever they want, as many times as they want - free of charge. It is essential that key people in Member organisations are trained and supported fully. Members may host their own Facing the Unthinkable training course at the discounted rate of £295 - instead of £345.

Special offers on resources
CCPAS produces many resources, such as books and dvds. Members are offered preferential access and discounted prices on many of our resources and are emailed details of our member-only "Book of the Month" promotions.
