Volunteer Adelah Bilal challenges the government’s Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) checking of 16- to 18-year-olds. As soon as Adelah celebrated her sixteenth birthday, she would no longer be seen as a vulnerable member of society, but instead a potential paedophile. In this report, Adelah interviews Josie Appleton from the Manifesto Club who runs the Campaign Against Vetting and the parents of two small children to consider the impact of vetting. Adelah concludes that her generation is growing up under a cloud of suspicion, and vetting will discourage her peers from developing their own judgement about whom to trust.
