    Do you have a Citizens Advice Bureau in your area as the CAB always seem to need IT (and other) volunteers?

    Have you tried contacting your local primary and secondary school's to see if their IT departments need any assistance? The downside, if they accept you, is the long wait for the CRB to come thru.

    Depends how old it is, even us that work in education have to have CRB re-done every so often. School's will also List 99 you (just for your info). So in essence it's a double check.
