Transsexual and CRB Checks
Having to have a CRB check done when you start a new job can be confusing especially if you are transgender, for fear that your previous name may become known to your new employer. However the Criminal Records Bureau has a team in place to handle sensitive information just like this.
We recommend that prior to filling out any CRB form that you make contact with the CRB sensitive team who will help you through the process.
The Criminal Records Bureau has a dedicated number for transgender people to ring which is 0151 676 1452, or they can be email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have a criminal record or caution from the police, it will appear in you old name unless you change the details on the Police National Database (PNC).
Pfc are currently seeking clarification with the the PNC people as to the correct procedure and once we have all the information will be providing guidance which will be available here.
