Resort Mission Confidential Disclosure
1: It is ICS’s policy to ask those who work for it and with it, who may come into contact with children and/or vulnerable adults, to complete this declaration before appointment or before contact with children and/or vulnerable adults. ICS undertake to meet the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/6791 and all other relevant legislation. This form is strictly confidential and, except under compulsion of law, will be seen only by those with a role in authorising and making your appointment. Your responses will only be held on file for up to twelve months following your chaplaincy period unless you specifically authorise the Resort Mission Manager to retain them for the purpose of allowing you to make a shorter declaration in future. In all cases, your responses must be confirmed, updated or repeated each time you are offered a chaplaincy or are joining a chaplaincy as a family or team member.
2: The posts or voluntary roles for which you are applying, or are currently working in, may involve work with children or vulnerable adults and are excepted from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. This means that all convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings on your criminal record need to be disclosed, whether spent or unspent.
If you make a disclosure and do not wish to have to repeat this each time, you must authorise the Resort Mission Manager to hold this information on file until you cease to serve as a Resort Mission Chaplain.
3: ‘Vulnerable adult’ is defined in ICS’s policy as a ‘person aged 18 years and over and who is suffering from or believed to be at significant risk of physical injury, neglect, emotional, financial or sexual abuse e.g. as a result of age, disability, bereavement, marital breakdown or incapacity.’‘Significant harm’ means ill treatment (which is serious and noteworthy) of any kind (including sexual abuse) or impairment of physical or mental health or development.
