Could someone please help me? A few months ago I was very depressed/low mood anxious etc due many personal circumstances in my family (deaths/breakdowns) etc. I took a Class A drug (amphetamine) and had to call for an Ambulance as I began to have a hyperventilate (panic-attack). When the Ambulance arrived the Police accompanied them – The police did asked me what had happened and I was truthful. I am a lot better now, taking prescribed medication and feeling so much better. The question is that, I have recently applied for a job as a part time support worker in a children’s home and they have requested an enhanced CRB check ... will this drug episode show on my CRB check?
It is very hard to tell what might appear on an enhanced CRB check, that uncertainty is one of the objections to the system. However, if you were not formally cautioned, arrested or charged and are not previously "known to the police", there is every chance that, though there will be a note of the incident somewhere, no police record has been created for you. Target culture notwithstanding, the police still have - and use - discretion to disregard offences. Where nobody else is harmed, and it doesn't look likely you are a future cause of trouble, then being told 'don't do it again' is still a possibility.
You should also remember that if something does find its way onto a CRB check that this is not necessarily going to exclude you from work. It depends enormously on the values and risk-aversion of the organisation concerned.
