Hi,
Just looking for advice really,
Over 10 years ago my ex husband and I had a fight (he was cheating) and I got a caution. I have no recollection of this as I was very ill at the time. I have no papers and recently  rang this advice line and received very helpful advice. I have submitted a request to ACRO about what the caution was for.
I am now looking for little jobs and recently got one in a care home. Not as a carer but in the laundry. They want an enhanced DSB and I am worried that if the caution was for ABH ( he hit me and I hit him) then I have no chance. If so, then it seems very unfair that I cannot get a job. All the local cleaning jobs need a DSB as well. This was the only violent incident in my entire life. Any advice/ideas. I know it will depend on the ACRO results. Thanks.

If it does turn out you can’t get the job because of your caution look at other cleaning jobs that only require a basic dbs instead of an enhanced one as it won’t show up on a basic one.
