What is the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA)?


The Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) is a new organisation, which has been created to help prevent unsuitable people from working with children and vulnerable adults.

The ISA will be collaborating with the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB), resulting in every person who wants to work with vulnerable people being assessed. Which means all potential employees and volunteers now need to apply to register with the ISA.

Assessments will be based on data gathered by the CRB, including relevant criminal convictions, cautions and police intelligence.

Once this assessment has taken place, those individuals who are approved will become ISA registered.

This is of importance, as once this programme is in full swing, unless you are ISA registered you will be unable to be employed to work with vulnerable people.
