Hello Mike,

As per our telephone conversation I can confirm that CRB checks will only be necessary if your organisation is providing care to children, in which children are being left alone with volunteers. 
If parents or other CRB cleared volunteers are present with children then this will negate the need for individuals to need CRB clearance.
I hope this clarifies the issue for you.
Kind regards,  Joe Perry Cert CII
