Need to remember the prison is ours we just let them stay there. So none of this it's there house or own space. You can't go to a hotel and spark up?

I vaguely remember some movie where tons of missing people were returned to the planet including Glen Miller although he was slightly changed and now played reggae

In some YOI they do get gifts,socks or little stocking filler type things. Staff will usually get a longer dinner there will be a little fewer staff on over the whole day because bang up is usually earlier. You will tend to find its harder to bang up the more difficult cons near the end of your day over the festive period.

Debts and DROs

Post by thunderchild » Sat Nov 11, 2017 5:40 pm

Good evening! Hope you are all well :slbg:

Super excited and feeling confident about RAD on Wednesday, however, one thing is troubling me about vetting.....

I have debts, my credit score is poor and to the tune of about £3000. I don't think this is an awful lot, but I am under a Debt Relief Order. This means I am on the insolvency register but not actually bankrupt. With this in mind, I am now managing well financially. I haven't seen what the vetting forms look like so I am unsure if they give you the opportunity to explain these circumstances.

I see from other thread there are people with IVAs who have passed vetting due to being transparent with their debts on their forms, but I can't see anything more specific to a DRO. I have trawled the forums looking for an answer so I thought I'd bite the bullet and ask the question. :slin:

Anyone have any experience of this and am I wasting my time? I'm keen to give it a shot and planning on being as open as anyone can get!

Thanks in advance 8)

Can’t help with the DRO but as long as they can see you are dealing with it and you are honest about it, I can’t see it being a problem.

Under the financial branch in the vetting forms there is a segment that mentions about IVA’s/DRO’s - should be fine.
