Making fair and safe decisions about membership

The practical guide is designed to help NGBs understand their legal rights and responsibilities and best practice when a criminal record of an existing member of a governing body comes to light.

It's aimed at national governing bodies (NGBs) of sport and is primarily set within the context of the legal arrangements in England and Wales.

This publication looking at Making safe and fair decisions about membership for people with criminal records (PDF) has been produced by Nacro’s Employer Advice Service in conjunction with the CPSU.
