Policy Statement of the Ulster Hockey Union

The Ulster Hockey Union is fully committed to safeguarding the well being of its participants. Every individual in hockey should at all times, show respect and understanding for participants' rights, safety and welfare and conduct themselves in a way that reflects the principles of the organisation and the guidelines contained in the Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Children's Sport.

In working with young people in hockey our first priority is the welfare of young people and we are committed to providing an environment that will allow participants to perform to the best of their ability, free from abuse, neglect, bullying and intimidation.

Access NI Overview

A criminal history check is also known as a disclosure. AccessNI searches your details against UK criminal records and police information. These searches may disclose any criminal history to certain employers and organisations. AccessNI produces a disclosure certificate for every check.

AccessNI Checks

An AccessNI check is a criminal history record check which provides different levels of information about an individual. There are three levels of check:
1. A basic check contains details of all convictions considered to be unspent, or states that no convictions were found
2. A standard check contains details of all spent and unspent convictions and relevant cautions
3. An enhanced check contains the same information as a standard check as well as a check of police records held locally and, for positions working with children and vulnerable adults, may include information held by the Disclosure and Barring Service
