Criminal Record Disclosure Calculator - For Professionals & Organisations

The (UK) Disclosure Calculator is a web tool that can be used to find out when a criminal record becomes spent under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (ROA). The need to interpret complex legislation means that many people with a criminal record do not benefit from their legal rights under the ROA, making it harder for them to reintegrate into society. Professionals and organisations working with people with a criminal record can find it difficult to find out when their clients record becomes spent, particularly for clients with multiple convictions. The Disclosure Calculator makes it simple for you to calculate when a client 's criminal record becomes 'spent ' and no longer needs to be disclosed under the ROA (e.g. to employers and insurers), removing the discrimination, which acts as a barrier to successful reintegration. You will need to set up a corporate account so that you and|or your organisation you can integrate use of the Disclosure Calculator into the services that you provide to people with a criminal record. The tool is only as good as the information that you input - it will only give you an accurate result if you input accurate information.
