    It varies massively unfortunately! I've had 3 for various jobs, one took just under a fortnight, the longest nearly 6 weeks! Hope you get a speedy response.

    About a month on average I'd say.

    You could always contact CRB themselves to see where it's upto

    You need a separate CRB check for each volunteer job/role/paid job you do. You name the sponsoring organisation on the form- so you need to have the position lined up beforehand. I.e. you don't get the CRB and then go to charities saying 'I've been CRB checked already, please let me volunteer for you.' You apply for the position, then initiate the CRB check (the charity you want to volunteer for should help you with this, for voluntary positions there is no charge). If you volunteer with two charities, you need 2 CRBs to be undertaken.

    I assume it would be the same as with employment so it would be done through whoever you are volunteering for. Rules are changing but I think at the moment you still have to have a seperate crb for everything so like with me each employer did their own, its not something you can carry forward each time. Rubbish at explaining hope that makes sense lol
