Specific legislation provides exceptions to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 / Rehabilitation of Offenders (NI) Order 1978 / Criminal Justice (Spent Convictions and Certain Disclosures) Act 2016, whereby criminal convictions can never be regarded as ‘spent’, due to the nature of the work for which you are applying. Due to our work directly with vulnerable adults and children Praxis Care is covered by the applicable legislation. Please list below details of ALL charges, prosecutions, convictions, cautions, bind over orders, even if they happened a long time ago. You must include any that may be pending, minor matters and any road traffic or motoring offences. If none then you must write NONE above. If candidates fail to declare convictions they should be advised any offer of employment may be withdrawn for providing false information on their application form to gain employment.
