SCR AuditSingle Central Record (SCR) Audit Quotation

SCR Audits are always included as part of our main audit service. However, due to demand, SAFEcic is now also offering freestanding SCR Audits.

A correctly kept single central record is core to evidencing you are recruiting and managing your staff (including volunteers) responsibly for any possible regulatory inspections including those by Ofsted and the CQC

SCR audits can be delivered either on site or remotely and typically take one day and involve dip sampling the SCR and a minimum of 12 associated HR files for a range of posts including senior management, staff, volunteers and contractors recruited over time.NCVO24 110x181

All evidence is triangulated comparing the information in the HR files against the details recorded on the SCR throughout the entire recruitment process in line with the requirements, as relevant to the organisation, of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (as amended 2013, 2020 and 2023), Part 5 of the Police Act 1997, Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006, Child Care Act 2006, Section 128 of the Education and Skills Act 2008, The Immigration Act 2014, Keeping Children Safe in Education, Ofsted, the CQC and other regulators.

You will receive a comprehensive report including findings, general remarks and examples of good practice. Actions are graded for priority in an action plan outlining next steps with appropriate timeframes.

An SCR audit will support you in ensuring compliance and best practice in Safer Recruitment.
