Did you know that those people who represent you locally and nationally as Councillors or as MPs don’t have to have a check on their previous behaviour? So they don’t have to have had a DBS check even though they deal with vulnerable people looking for housing, needing help and support.

We at Advance Together believe that those who want to represent us in (and MPs nationally) should have basic checks – so similar to teachers 👩‍🏫, police 👮‍♂️or nurses 👩‍⚕️.

All our candidates will have one. This is about openness, trust and honesty.
